The Traveling Pattern Giveaway "Life's A Stitch" 5th finish of the year!

 Hello Stitching friends!  I am back with another quick finish :).  I think I am starting to get addicted to smalls since they go so much more quickly than the larger patterns I usually stitch.  Anyways on Thursday I received the Lizzie Kate "Life's A Stitch" in the mail all the way from Virpi in Finland. I planned to get started on it quickly so that others would have a chance to stitch it, but then it really hit me that I could have my baby at any time now (I am due exactly one week from today!) and I would hate to sit on this project for longer than necessary.  So I promptly started it on Friday March 28th and then finished it on Sunday March 2nd!
Here is my finished piece!  I stitched it on 18 count Hand Dyed Ultra Very Dark Desert Sand from Stitchnmomma's Etsy Shop.  She was having an amazing 50% off sale and I purchased a few fabrics earlier in the week.  This was perfect because I am currently separated from most of my stash until sometime in May and I was able to use this new purchase along with the left over threads from Diamond Avenue to complete this design.  This is actually my first time stitching a Lizzie Kate design after admiring them on so many other blogs!  
This travelling pattern started out in lovely Canada, and since then it has travelled to France, Finland, the USA and even South Africa! 
 If you would like a chance to receive this pattern please leave me a comment.  You must have a blog to be able to share your finished piece and good luck!
