Traveling Pattern PIF

Summer Splendor was such a fun, quick stitch!  I mostly stitched it during my lunch hour at work.  I took some "creative liberties" with color changes and am thrilled with how it turned out. 

If you're interested in stitching this chart -and- passing it forward, comment on this post.  I will randomly draw a name to pass the chart to on September 7th.  There are a few rules:

1.  You must have an active blog.

2.  You agree to stitch it promptly (ASAP).

3.  Please pass it along to a fellow stitcher via a drawing on your blog.

4.  Post your finish and the history (which is the coolest part!) of where the chart has traveled.

Just look at all the places this chart has been:

•  Kathy at Kathy's Sit and Stitch; Ontario, Canada - Completed March 2012
•  Carol at Stitching Dreams; Pennsylvania, USA - Completed May 2012
•  Lisa at Lisa V's Lounge; Perth, Australia - Completed August 2012
•  Ellen at Stitch Passion; Singapore - Completed August 2012
•  Theresa at Giraffe Crossing; Taiwan - Completed December 2012
•  Tatyana at Girl with Hoop; Russia - Completed May 2013
•  Vicky at Nutmegger's Stitching Works; Connecticut, USA - Completed July 2013
•  Meari at Meari's Musings; Illinois, USA - Completed August 2013

Summer Splendor - LHNPC-36
Designer:  Little House Needleworks
Fabric:  28ct Dusty Rose Charles Craft Evenweave

Until next time,

It is beautiful!!! I will have to pass on this contest though as I don't have a blog & I don't know when I would be able to stitch it.
Good luck to whoever receives it.

Nice finish Meari, and that quilt is just lovely, great job! Hope your weather is getting better than ours here in KY, can’t wait for Indian Summer, and hot tea by the gas logs with a dusting of snow on the ground.....and no yard and garden work to do. Hugs,
