Crazy January start #16 and traveling pattern winner!
Day #16 of the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Jacks are Wild from Waxing Moon Designs. I won this chart from Ingrid of Mii Stitch blog. I started to stitch it on off-white Aida, but ripped it out and started over again on 28 ct tan linen over 2. The yellow swirls and white zigzags will show up so much better! The finished size will be 12" x 5". Since it is long and skinny, I have the linen turned sideways and it looks like the lines are vertical instead of horizontal. Does it look OK to you? This is the same linen I used for Jolly Jack and Quaker Moon, which used 9" x 9" pieces and this piece is 9" x 18".
The winner of the traveling pattern, Life's a Stitch, is Virpi! I have left a comment on her blog to send me her address since she has noreply-comment so I can't send her an email. I hope she sees it and contacts me. She lives in Finland. Wow! This traveling pattern sure gets around! It has been stitched in Canada, South Africa, France, California, and now to Finland as soon as I finish stitching it myself.
