Rowyn from Stitching under the Southern Cross Blog here recently shared one of her Shepherd's Bush Charts ( along with the left over thread) and I was the lucky one to be selected in the draw.
It arrive late last week and I must admit other things were put aside so I could stitch it straight away, I really enjoyed stitching this little design and would now like to offer the chart to another embroiderer.
For my piece I stitch on 35 count Lambswool permin , not the 32 as suggested and kept a note of how much thread I used of each colour. The threads were silk and the number given apply to
Kreinik    Soie D'alger there is not enough of all colours to stitch another one however I have checked the colours against my DMC chart and made a list so if anyone else would like this chart I am happy to pass it on. Please leave a comment and in a weeks time  on February 6th I will do a draw and pass the chart on to another embroiderer,

I plan to make this into a Needle book and havin looking at some of my Shepherd's Bush designs for small motif to finish it.

Simple threrads which to the work belong
Remember in your silence - my hearts song.

Shepherd's Bush always has the sweetest designs that are fun to stitch. What a nice idea to stitch and pass along. Looking forward to your finished needlebook. Thanks for a fun passalong.

Oh how fun. I would love to stitch it and then pass it on. But I don't have a blog. So I thought if my name is pulled, then you draw a 2nd name. That person I would pass it on to after me:)
