Another one done and Traveling Pattern win

I've managed to finish up another in the Doubleflip series, so with the completion of Remember, I'm now a quarter of the way done with this fun word series. This is turning out to be such a fun one, and is actually moving along quicker than I thought it would. I spent the day at my brother's today, so my DSIL and I got a fair amount of stitching in, which allowed for a nice start on Give. I'm running a bit ahead of Kim on this, whose my SAL partner, so I'll need to be working on something else soon to give her a chance to catch up. There are several WIP's that haven't seen any attention in a while that I could start or ........

I can start this one when I get it Yup, that's right I won Wendy's drawing to be the next one to get My Needle and My Floss by Waxing Moon. Or, as it is getting to be better known, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pattern. This pattern has been through the hands of several stitchers now, each putting their own unique changes in it to make it theirs. I'm honored to be in the group sharing this link.

If you go to Wendy's blog you can see her finished one, as well as her earlier entry where she shows some of the notes people have left on the pattern as it has been passed around. I don't know how many have stitched it exactly, but I do know that it has been all over the world, showing that the love of stitching really has no borders.

Given that I'll want to get stitching this when I get it, so that I can forward it on to the next individual in the Traveling Pattern chain, this will be my focus piece for a bit. If you want to be included in my drawing to be the next one to get this pattern, please leave me a comment and I'll put your name in the hat. I'll collect names until I get it finished. At that time I'll draw, and the Traveling Pattern will be winging its way to a new home.

Hope everyone is having a fun and safe holiday weekend, now I'm off to catch up on what you've all been doing.

    The traveling pattern is such a neat idea.

    Your Dream, Love, Remember, Give is coming along quickly. I like it.
    That idea for the Traveling Pattern is a cute one. I wish I could join in, but at the rate I am stitching these days, it would end up here and that would be that. That wouldn't be fair. So I will just be happy to watch it's progress.
    Hope your fourth was peaceful...mine sucked, as far as the noise goes...until 12:30 this morning! AAARRRGGGHHH! Next year I would like to go to a country that doesn't have the celebration. (In my dreams, I could never afford it) Maybe I'll take the dogs to a quiet town for the night!

    Sue, enter my name for the travelling pattern. I believe I will tear out my green border and replace it with avocado. Don't worry, I'll keep up and be doing that on the side. ;)

    Both my Barnabees Quest and 4 Season were travelling charts and from me they went to another stitcher and the next one is already waiting in the wings. In the case of both mine though they have been treated with much care, but I do like the idea of little notes in the margins from different stitchers. A bit like finding an old an much treasured cook book.
