So, congratulations to Jennifer of Sweet Pea Stitches you'll be the next one to join the sisterhood and stitch this wonderful design.

So without further delay, here is my finish Now I just need to do the finishing. This was on 34 ct Legacy Linen in Devonshire Cream. It was a joy to stitch on, the only problem was that the white in some areas doesn't show real clearly. However, it shows a little better in real life, so I left it as was. I think it will come out a little more when I get a mat and frame for it as well. This was such a fun stitch, I hated to see it come to an end.

However, my new start of Joyful Summer by CCN is a delightful stitch as well. I've made a bit more headway on it now as you can see. This is turning into a fast stitch. It looks more time consuming than it really is, as it is kind of a spread out design. In addition, the lovely overdyes it uses, so there are large blocks of color with no real color change needed, makes it move quickly. This one, with all its bright crazy colors just makes me smile to look at it.

    Congratulations to Jennifer on being the next to join the sisterhood. I hope that my turn will come someday. Either that or I'll have to buy the pattern for myself and start a second sisterhood. ;) Your rendition looks great! I love how everyone has tailored it to their own color scheme. It's wonderful to watch!

    Hi Sue,

    So the Sisterhood chart is on the
    move again. Happy stitching to
    Jennifer.

    Your version of the design is
    beautiful Sue. The blue thread
    you used for the dress looks so
    pretty. So, how are you going
    to finish it off??

    Joyful Summer is coming along
    and looking fantastic. This is
    such a pretty design, and a
    little different from the usual
    stuff that CCN and LHN put out.
    I've got it to stitch someday
    too, and so am watching those
    who are stitching it first with
    great interest.

    What a lovely little cat Isis
    is. Isn't it a pain when you
    get poked and prodded awake at
    some ungodly hour because kitty
    wants some attention.

    Last night Rupert was digging
    at the blankets with his front paws. Guess one of us moved
    their foot or something and
    it woke up his dormant hunting instincts. Either that or he was bored. Anyways, I slid my foot
    over under the covers and goosed him and he jumped a foot! It was
    hilarious! Revenge is sweet!!

    Your Stitch collection is so
    cute. I'm afraid that we all
    have our own soft spots for
    stuffies. I've got a pile of
    bears, rabbits and cats that
    I tell people are for decoration.
    Well, they are...sort of.

    Good luck with the new camera.
    Oh look...it's blue!! How about
    that!

    Cheers!!

    I love Joyful Summer too, it joined my stash just a few weeks ago. Can't wait to get started at it!
    Congrats to Jennifer on being the next for the travelling pattern.
    Your finish of it is just fantastic. Love that blue!
