Pattern of the Week - August 4, 2012

I have been in love with Barbara & Cheryl charts since I was a teenager and first started cross stitching, many, many moons ago.  Over the years I have collected them, but have yet to stitch one, and now have more than 1/2 of the charts they've designed.  

Being a "Yankee" from the North (if you consider Ohio being in the North), there's something about the Southern charm of their charts that appeals to me.  I can picture myself strolling the streets of Charleston, SC or New Orleans, LA peeking through iron gates, sitting on the large front porches, etc.  

This week I'm choosing their pattern "A Change of Pace" as my pattern of the week.  It's one of my favorites, and of course is in my extensive stash.  If you're interested in this pattern, or seeing what else Barbara & Cheryl design, just click the picture and you'll go to where it can be purchased...and on sale to boot!
