Thankful Time to Travel

I had done a few of the letters last night and today I mostly just sat and stitched.  I stitched all morning and in the car on the way to meet my parents for lunch as they were driving back through town.  Even stopped by a quilt store to see if I could find a backing fabric.  Debating on if I should frame it or make something else out of it. Tomorrow I will have to clean something out in the dinning room to appease my husband. ;)   Had a tiny frog appear when I stitched the h a half stitch too far over but everything else seemed to go well and I had just enough Old Oak Tree.  Which was the only color that the chart called for that I had picked out even before the pattern had arrived.  I changed the color of the flower because my sheep loving friend is fond of blue. 

So far this pattern has traveled from Geeky Heather, Sharon (Daffy Cat), Mouse, Anne, Gracie, and it started with Tricia.

If you'd like to stitch this pattern, please leave a comment on this post saying you want to be the next person in the stitcherhood.  If you're chosen, you promise to stitch it right away and pass it on as soon as you can.  I will mostly likely draw on Thursday June 7th.  I took the day off from work because my anniversary was on the 5th and I wanted a long weekend.  I will probably sit and stitch my dragon pattern since my husband was getting low on days he could take and we're saving for something down the road.

Also, don't forget I have my own relay stitch that I will draw for on Sunday before I go to work.

Hi Ziggyeour

Your finish is just gorgreous. I like the idea of changing the flower colour to suit your friends taste.
Could I please enter the draw for the travelling pattern?
