The Travelling Cross Stitch

Last month I won the travelling cross stitch pattern from Marina's blog & now it's my turn to give it away.
I stitched it on 14 count aida & used the dmc recommended except for 1 thread which i didn't have & used a substitute.
 This pattern started it's journey in South Africa farewelled by Cucki. Since leaving Cucki in 2011 it has travelled to the UK then Poland and more recently to Western Australia onto Melbourne & now Ipswich.
Thanks to Cucki for sharing a bit of fun.


Here are the rules if you would like the travelling pattern to visit at your house:
1. You must have a blog. 
2. Comment on this post only, saying you would like the chance to stitch it.
3. You must have an active blog to participate; if you have a blog but never post on it you won't be chosen to be the next stitcher.
4.The stitcher who receives the Travelling Pattern must stitch it within an acceptable time frame, finish it & share the finished piece on their blog. Stitch with your choice of fabric & threads; finish it how you wish.
4.Then the stitcher must offer up the Travelling Pattern for another stitcher to use and it will be off on its travel again. You only send the pattern, no 'extras' are required.
