Voodoo Boy Chart

There have been so many questions about which chart I used for Harmien's "McGoblin/Voodoo Girl" that I thought I needed to share this one with you. As you can see, I really changed things up, as did Harmien when she stitched hers for Annemarie.
I'm wondering if I should send the little thing "around the world" as a pass-along among us as stitching friends.... What do you think? If you're interested, please comment and I'll start the chart around!

Hugs, Deb

Hi Deborah,

Lovely to hear from you. I've been a long time fan of your blog and your wonderful stitching. And I enjoy your fascination with Marie Antoinette in particular, and historical royalty in general.
And a book lover to boot! What more can you ask for???

These Voodoo dolls you and your comrades are stitching are a hoot!
Love how you are each taking the design and changing it, each in your own way, to make it uniquely yours. Bet the designer would get a kick out of it too. The best part of being creative is when your vision encourages and inspires creativity in others.

I'm intrigued by your descriptions of, and enthusiasim for Kate Mosse's books. Think I'll have to check her out when next I'm ordering from the bookstore.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I think it's a great idea to let little "Voodoo Boy" travel around the world as a pass-along! I would be very happy to give him a temporarily home ;)
I'm glad to see you're back in Blogworld!

Hugs, Simone

Oh, yes, if you're willing to part with your Voodoo Boy, do send it around the world! I can't think of much better than chasing away the McMurphy's. LOL!!!

Wendy said...

Great idea to send it about, Deb! I know I would be interested in having my own little voodoo creation.

What a great idea Deb. I think it would be wonderful fun and especially if everyone uses their own ideas and personalizes it. I am sure we all could use a little voodoo at times in our life and how cool it would be to share. If you decide to go that route, sign me up!!!! please

If stitching that little guy will chase away the "bad luck" then I need 'em!!! Since I moved to CT (yuck) 6 yrs ago I have had bad luck~ I think it is my house, but I can't seem to sell the damn thing! LOL

Please add me to the growing list for the Voodoo doll...I'd love to make a couple as well. Glad you're loving your new job!

I'll be sure to take lots of pictures at Versailles later this week and see to it that you get copies! : )

Take care!

I think sending him around the world for all of us to stitch would be a great idea! Add me to the list.
