Finished and ready to travel again



Count your Blessings is done and the pattern is ready to travel to Stitcher number 27. I enjoyed stitching this Shakespeare's Peddler pattern and will be looking for just the right finish for it. I wanted it small so I stitched it on 28 count mystery fabric over one, it came out great. I only changed one color since I didn't have DMC 612 so  I used DMC 611. 
If you would like to be the next stitcher please leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on February 15th.

Just for fun this year I have added a list of the books I have read or listened to since New Years. I am going to see if I can keep this up for the year to see just how much I do read or listen to. I am just starting the Arcane Society book series by Amanda Quick/ Jayne Ann Krentz, there are 12 books in the series. Half of them are historical and the rest are present day, but since historical's aren't my thing I'll see if I get through them. 

Happy Stitching Everyone.

Hello MarchAnn!
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment recently.

Count your Blessings is adorable. How are you going to finish it? I love your color change. The fabric is perfect for this piece.

Please add my name to be the next one to stitch this up. I promise to stitch it up quick and pass it on.

Your reading sounds interesting this year. Good Luck. I don't think I can get through one book. I used to be able to read for hours when I was younger.

I am a new follower of your blog and I added you to my reading list so I can keep up.

Hugs and Happy Stitching!

I have been reading your blog since you lived in VA and just became a follower! Your Count your Blessings finish is beautiful. Throw my name in the hat for the travelling pattern to possibly make a stop at my house! Thanks for the chance.
