Travelling Pattern Jolly Jack Has Arrived

Good morning everyone and a big welcome to my new followers. Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my blog.
 
Back at the beginning of August, Devon over at Devon's Quiet Corner decided to do a travelling pattern with Jolly Jack (HERE). She wanted to see how many Jolly friends we could stitch before October 31. She sent it off to Amanda over at Sampler, Silks & Linens. You can see her finished Jolly Jack (HERE). She picked my name to send it to next and I recieved it on Wednesday. Last night after I got home from my grandson's 3rd & 4th grade football game I got started on it.
Here is my start

Jolly Jacks

called for WDW
Started - 9/20/2012
So I am hopeing to complete this pattern this week end and would like to get it sent to the next luck jolly friend at the begining of next week. If you are interested in this pattern please leave me a comment on this post  and on Monday the 24th or Tuesday the 25th I will ramdomly pick its next new home. But the deal is you have to stitch it up quickly and sent it on its way.
 
I did not start Jolly Jack on Wednesday when I got because I had to finish my baby photo frame for my great niece, they are having a baby shower for her this weekend. So I need to make sure it was finished first. And here it is.

I have an 8 by 10 frame that this will fit into and that is a real picture of my great niece before they left the hospital after she was born.
 
I am going to leave you with a couple of random pictures of my grandkids and my furry friends.

Well I think this is long enough so until next time
Happy Stitching
