Summer Postcard Blog Hop

The lovely Jo has yet again hosted a fun blog hop. This time it was a Summer Postcard Blog Hop. Throughout the summer months we have sent Jo an international themed postcard to share with someone else. She emails us a picture and the story of the piece to share with everyone on our blogs.

You should stop over to Jo's blog to see what fun thing she will host next. My image was shared on Aimetu's Stitching blog here if you are interested in seeing it.

Now it's my turn to share the last postcard for the summer...
The message is:
This is a Michael Powell pattern I had found in a Cross Stitcher magazine years ago.
I have stitched this twice. I first stitched it as a gift for my American sea glass friend Marabeth who had invited us to the States some years ago. As our first trip was cancelled just a week after booking the flight (the Hungarian air company Malev got bankrupt) I kept the gift till we found well priced tickets to book again. That took us two years and I had already fallen in love with the gift hanging on my wall so I stitch it again for my friend.
Ariadne from Greece

Thank you Jo for hosting and for Ariadne for playing along. It's been a lot of fun to see what each person has picked out to share with everyone. Here are the other people who have posted according to Jo's blog...

Thanks for taking part in the Summer Postcard Blog Hop this year. I do like these Michael Powell designs even though I have not stitched one yet.

I am so glad you received my digital card and liked it. Greek islands are so beautiful I especially like the Cyclades. Anyway I am so happy I stitched this twice and now it adorns two houses of friends on the two different sides of the world. Thanks for the blog post. I will edit mine now. Hugs. AriadnefromGreece!
