Stitch Maynia 2016 - Day 9 - Around the World in 80 Stitches - Papillon Creations

If you haven't heard of Maynia before please see my post from 1st May - don't want to repeat myself everyday and bore everyone..

My day 9 project is Around the World in 80 Stitches from Papillon Creations.

I don't have a picture of the finished item without using a picture from another stitcher so I will just link to the gallery.

I am stitching this on 28 count opalescent Brittney in Sunset Sky from Crafty Kitten.  I am stitching 2 over 2.  There are no specific colours charted for this design so I am using a variety of hand dyed flosses from my stash.

Here's the picture of the progress I made today:

Keep stitching and smiling

So happy you shared this as one of your Maynia projects. This may prompt me to get mine back out.

Wow, very adventurous choice, good luck! Great idea to use up colours from your stash to stitch this one.

Great work on all the Maynia starts so far.
Love the Just Nan. Thankful you noticed the start error on L&L too! Are you stitching her as charted or using a conversion to oranges?
I also started the Papillon SAL but found all the speciality stitches very "bitty" and didn't enjoy changing colours. Maybe one day I'll pick it up again!
