The Sisterhood is ready to move on!!

Dear Stitching Friends -

Many of you have been waiting patiently as I completed my Sisterhood task, at least this is what I liked to tell myself as I labored along this journey. I am very proud to announce that she is finished and ready to move on to the next stitcher. It was fun to stitch her and this is the only time in all my stitching years that I changed every color to suit my taste. Overall, I am pleased with the outcome even though the frogs did pay me a few visits on this journey, surely they have gone into hibernation by now.

If you are inclined to become a member of this Sisterhood, just add a comment to my blog. I will be taking names until 1800 CST, Thursday, 30 October 2008. The new recipient will be selected and announced on Halloween. She is packaged up and anxiously waiting for her new home address. A picture of my stitching will be posted with the winner's name on 31 October.

I have added the journey of this Waxing Moon Designs #119 chart as compiled by Anna (aka Stitch Bitch). I think it is wonderful to know where she has been and where she will go. Thanks Anna!

As you can see she has been around the world and she is eager to hit the road again. She has spent way too much time in the North Texas wind.

Happy Stitching!!
