ABCD Traveling Pattern

I just put the last stitches in ABCD by La D Da and rushed outside to get a picture while it was still daylight.
I used 28 ct Raspberry Chocolate linen with Belle Soie Bahama Breeze & Icing floss.  This was such an enjoyable stitch.  A big thank you to Peggy Lee for sharing this pattern and to Jennifer for organizing this pattern's trip around the world.

Next stop----> Nancy's Cosy Stitching Corner.  :o)  I hope you enjoy stitching this as much as I did.  I plan to get it in the mail to you tomorrow.

Myra it's just gorgeous! I am really enjoying seeing the many interpretations this pattern is going through. I just KNOW I will be stitching this one again as I did it in boring black.

Oh, so pretty. I love that choc rasp linen! I am patiently (not) waiting for my turn...four more to go now I think! I have my linen and fiber picked out...still debating what to do with my initials as I wanted to highlight but fell in love with an overdyed fiber....

Isn't this just the best thing...connects us blog stitchers even more!

Myra - I just love your colors!! Anything that has to do with chocolate has to be good, right? I love how you made your initials stand out - that's something I love to do to! I'd better start planning my colors out - with as fast as everyone is stitching this, it will make it to me in no time!

Berit said...

The quirkiness of the "S" stands out more since you changed the color--cute! I like it!

Your first Belle Soie--impressions? I like them, but I think overdye cotton is still a favorite and I also have a definite spot in my heart for DMC. :D

mdgtjulie said...

Wow, Myra. I love the flossies you used for this. I'm assuming Bahama Breeze is the blue and Icing is the white. They're looking fine!! Grats on the finish!

Lana said...

That is gorgeous!!! I love the blue on that fabric!!
