Homecoming - Part Two

Hello Friends!  
I'm finally getting around to posting the remaining pictures from the journey of La D Da's ABCD traveling pattern.  Sorry for the delay. 


Maggee was the second stitcher on the list. She used
purple and cranberry floss colors.

Nancy stitched hers in September of 2011. She said she will decide
if she will include the border when she chooses how
she will finish it.

Robin chose very pretty Fall colors on 28 ct Cashel Antique Ivory.

Nancy used green silks to stitch hers because it reminded
 her of the evergreens that surround her during that Winter season.

It looks like Sherry's page got wet somewhere along it's travels
so please go to her blog HERE to see the beautiful pictures
she posted on her blog. (HINT: she did something different
with the border)  

Teresa's favorite color is pink (mine too) so she used
Cottage Colors Secondhand Rose for the letters and finished
it in to a long pillow with chenille trim.

Kathy used a very pretty light green 32 ct linen with Carries Creations
Sunflower and Jellyfish threads. 

Mouse was extra ambitious and stitched it twice!
The first one she will frame.........................
................and the second she will make in to a needle book.
Love your thinking, Mouse!

Cath started hers in a variegated thread but didn't care for it as
much as her second choice of colors. 

Her finished result is beautiful!


I can't thank everyone enough for taking part in this adventure of the traveling pattern. 
It was such fun!

If there is anyone who wanted to stitch it and didn't get a chance to, please let me know and I will send it on it's way again.  

Here is the complete list of everyone who took part.  Just click on their name and it will take you to their blog where they posted about stitching the pattern.

Well there you have it.  
I hope you enjoyed following along.

Till next time ~

I love the idea of a journal...each stitcher adding their story and the little scraps of fabric and threads included just makes it so special. A wonderful keepsake

This adventure started before I even knew you Peg. I followed this pattern's journey for well over a year though. I would love a chance to stitch it up. =)
