I won! Will you?

Hello friends and fellow bloggers!

My week was kind of crazy...I don't think I'm fully recovered just yet!  I started out the week with only two things scheduled, and as the week went on it got crazier and crazier.  I didn't get much stitching done until the weekend, but am relieved to report that I have now finished my section of Niina's RR.

But before I get to that I want to get to what I won!  My little pal Nathan picked my name out of the hat and I became the next recipient of the Traveling Pattern!  I learned about it on Astrid's blog.  I'm the 31st person to receive this pattern.  What fun!!  Astrid has shown nearly all the houses and who has had it in the past on her blog, you can find the pictures by clicking on her name.  

I have already begun stitching, and will post materials once I'm finished stitching.  If you would like to be the next recipient, please leave a comment.  I will post the next person to receive this pattern in a future post, so keep checking back.  It won't take me long to stitch this!!   There are a couple of rules.  You must be willing to pass the pattern on quickly to another person.  Please let's keep this pattern traveling!!  I will be looking for someone who has a good reputation for stitching things in a timely manner and one who keeps their promise.  If you are interested,  please comment on this post ONLY, and when I'm finished, I'll choose the next one to receive the pattern.

Speaking of keeping things moving, I have finished my portion on Niina's RR.  I belong to a group called Friendly Stitcher's Round Robin.  There are 8 of us in this group, stitching on each other's pieces and sending them along to the next person.  This is the section that I completed for Niina.

And here is what the whole piece looks like at the moment.  I'll be sending it on to the UK early next week, hopefully!  I've really enjoyed participating in this and can't wait to see what mine looks like!  

Off to get some more stitching done.  Last week was so busy, with meeting up with friends, doctors appointments and a baseball game that I really didn't get much done.  Hopefully once I finish up the Traveling Pattern I will be  able to get more of my stitching done.  Wish me luck!  LOL

Dear DJ some lovely stitching as usual I would love to stitch the travelling pattern but would be too scared it would get lost in the post.
