Traveling Pattern - Done and time for it to move on

Well, I stitched a little here an there, but mostly on the airplane and got Thankful for Ewe all completed. But before I show that off, lets see a few other places it went.

Acting as a cover-all to the replica David statue on the plaza in front of the Vecchio Palace in Florence. (We did see the real thing, photos weren't allowed.)

Next up, here we are in the Cinque Terre national park at the village of Manarola...

and in the village of Vernazza, which suffered from major flooding in October of 2011.

On a different day, the Traveling pattern could be seen at the top of the Dome of the Duomo.  It's only 460 some odd steps to the top...

Down at the Straw Market patting the boars nose (It's supposed to ensure you return again.)

And out at the Boboli Gardens at the Pitti Palace. (We were inside too but again, no photos allowed.)

And lastly, in front of a stitchy store that was never open.  We went by on all days at all sorts of times, at this address and a second address.  The annoyed expression on my face pretty much sums it up.  I wanted to get some European stitchy stuff!!

I forgot to haul it around with me in Venice, and finished up the stitching while relaxing outside on the Cruise ship.

Now for the fun part!  It's time for this pattern to travel on to a new stitcher!  Leave a comment on this post only (please include your e-mail address so I can contact you!) if you want to be next to stitch this cute little pattern.  I'll leave it open until Sunday night, July 8th and then Mr. Randomizer will do it's thing on Monday.

Hugs & Stitches,
