Updated pic and question for Toni!!!!

As Ruth had mentioned, I had wanted to stitch another square on KarenAZ's piece, so Ruth sent it back to me after she stitched on it. I ended up stitching 2 more squares, "H" and "I" (back in Sept, I stitched "J" and "R"). Here is an updated picture.

And, Ruth, here is the signature piece with your name added.

Question for Toni --- how is your recovery going? Are you stitching yet? Reason I asked.... Julie and I were talking last week. She currently has a couple Society RR pieces, ones that she will be sending to you when they are finished. If you are up to stitching, would you like me to send KarenAZ's piece to you now, you stitch on it next, then send it back to Julie? If you were starting to stitch again, it would get a piece to you now and by the time you finished it and sent it to Julie, Julie will probably have sent you another package with others to work on. Entirely up to you... if you're still not recovered enough to stitch, I'll send KarenAZ's piece to Julie.

Follow up to Ruth's Post...

Either I'm a bit slow or just a bit paranoid - or both. LOL Who has my RR? I didn't see where anyone had mine. Please tell me it has a safe temporary home somewhere. :)

Toni - how is the shoulder coming along?

Monday, November 24, 2008

Summarizing and a shout out to our buddy Toni --

First things first -- how's the shoulder, Toni? Are you being gentle with yourself?

Ok, let me summarize what I know of what's where at the moment:

Sharon has: Julie, Ruth, and Chris

Shelleen has: Sandy

Chris has: Kaz (yes, this is out of order, she wanted to stitch another square besides the ones she'd previously done so I mailed ti to her and she'll mail it to Julie when she's done)

Julie has (?): Shelleen and KarenNY

Sandy has Toni

Toni has nothing

Ruth has nothing

Karen NY and KAZ have either nothing or Sharon.... right ?

Saturday, November 22, 2008

I finally got some stitchign done...

I started Julie's today and I'm hopinh to finish it today too. (now that Jim's home) I'm hoping to then start on ruth's and have both of them ready to send by the end of this week. Then I'll start on Chris' since Shelleen still has Sandy's. not that I'm complaining that Shelleen still has one. I think 3 is plenty for me at one time. LOL

Monday, November 17, 2008

Ok, KarenAZ ....

.... here you go--
11_16_2008 006
Actually, as of lunch today, all the boxes are done.

BTW, I think I'll call you Kaz. KarenAZ is so cumbersome.

Sunday, November 16, 2008


Want a progress pic or do you want to be surprised?

Sunday, November 9, 2008

Julie and Shelleen

First - Julie - I haven't started on yours yet as I'm trying to find the time to read through all fo the instructions. I must a bit intimidating. :-)

Shelleen - OK- you need to slow down just a bit. LOL Right now I have Julie, Ruth and Chris's RR. I'm hoping to get some time today to start on Julie's. Hopefully I'll have one or two to send in the next 2 weeks.


Thursday, November 6, 2008


....love your linen. It's so nice to stitch on.

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Julie . . .

Please take your time with the stitching - I'm having some minor shoulder surgery tomorrow (Nov 5) so will not be stitching for 4 or 5 weeks (what am I gonna do??!!). That is, unless I can figure out how to use my left hand to stitch!


Monday, November 3, 2008


1 big package is on the way to you with 2 RRs in it.


Got your mail Ruth....

I got your package Ruth....

Toni, Ruth and I have been a bottleneck for you.   I'll get something off to
you as soon as I can.  


Sunday, November 2, 2008

Toni's RR finished.....

I started working on it Friday night, finished third square about an hour ago. I will get it into the mail to Sandy tomorrow.

I recieved Sandy's RR

and will work on that as soon as I finish another project I am on. The other 2 RRs that I have will be mailed out tomorrow. I bought big enough mailing envelopes and then ran out of money to go to the PO. So Sharon be on the lookout this week.


Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Received Toni's RR

I forgot to post last week. Sharon hand-delivered Toni's RR to me at Myrtle Beach at the PALS Fall Fling. I should be able to start and finish 2 or 3 squares by the end of this coming weekend.

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

RR mailing!!

Hey Ruth!!!

I'm sending the RR today via UPS. Not sure when you'll get it but it should be there soon!!!


PS If anyone feels sorry for me, I'd love to see my piece early. :) :)

Yee haw!

My snowman's done!!!!! Julie they should head your way in this afternoon's mail.

Monday, October 27, 2008

Julie, Toni, Karen, and Shelleen......

Julie (and by extrapolation Toni), you'll be getting stitching soon!

Karen -- I have finished up your piece and it's lovely. Simply lovely. In your honor I sat in the window at the hospitality House and stitched on it. I learned in that attempt that light bulbs are better than the sun on 40-count projects. lol

Shelleen -- I'm just backstitching my little mod snowperson. I think she's cute.... possibly even cuddly.

Julie again -- If all goes as expected in my life this evening, both pieces will be in the mail to you tomorrow.

Oh, Toni, I saw your piece at Pals and it's soooooo cool.

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I got Sandy's RR in the mail today

It looks great and I can't wait to get started on it. I used to be in several band rr's, so this should be fun.


Sunday, October 12, 2008

2 RRs done

I did finish Chris's RR as well. There is no mail tomorrow and Sharon will be going to MB so I thought it would be better if I mail both RRs next weekend so Sharon will be home when they get there.

Monday, October 6, 2008

Ruth's RR

is done and was a fun stitch and I started Chris's. This one is cute as well. I will mail Ruth's to Sharon at the end of the week.

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Tuesday, September 23, 2008


I finished Julie's RR and started Ruth's. I will get Julie's to Sharon in the next day or 2.


Sunday, September 21, 2008

Hey Sandy, be on the lookout...

I've finished my stitching on KarenAZ's RR. It is so cute. I took photos, but will post a little later (I need to go to bed). Sandy, it will be mailed to you tomorrow.

Friday, September 19, 2008

I still have Sandy's RR

I am still working on Sandy's RR. I started out like gangbusters and fizzled out. LOL I just need to sit my butt down and finish my portion, that's all. I have sooo much going at the same time that i just keep picking something different up everyday. OY! I am planning on working on this piece this weekend to finish it up and get in the mail this week.

hugs, karen

Thursday, September 18, 2008

Shelleen and Karen NY -- Your RRs are here!

Would you like to see pictures of them????? They're really pretty!

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

I have 3 RRs

I was waiting for Julie's floss and then Ruth's came in last week and Chris' arrived today. I am finishing a Halloween exchange and then will work solely on the RRs and will get them mailed out.


Monday, September 15, 2008

Believe it or not!!!

I finished 2 rr's over the weekend and got them both in the mail to Ruth today!!! Yes, Ruth I finshed one of them in 1 day. So go ahead and call me an ugly name like you usually do.

Haven't had much free time to myself in the past 3 months. Can you say finally 3 hours on Thursday. Totally and completely by myself.

George has left to go to Washington state today and won't be back until Thursday. I'll keep Jeremy to have Tues and Wednes nights to myself!!! Can you say happy dance!!!


Friday, September 5, 2008

Hiya everyone

Let's do a check in shall we? Who has which RRs?

I'm robinless currently.

Thursday, August 21, 2008


is anyone there? I am still waiting for the DMC threads so I can start the RR that I have.


Thursday, August 7, 2008


Did you send out the floss out?


Friday, August 1, 2008


I shipped Sandy's piece off to you today - priority mail - please let me know when you get i!


Friday, July 25, 2008

My Round Robin

Karen let me know that the DMC that I had sent along with my Round Robin had run out.  I'm not sure if Karen has already mailed to Shelleen.  I apparently didn't note my color changes for myself before I mailed.  

Can you guys let me know the colors which ran out, and I'll forward the DMC along to Shelleen which I think Karen said is getting it next.


Friday, July 11, 2008

Howdy to KarenNY

Here is an updated photo of your RR piece.

I stitched "K", "L", and "M". I finished it a few weeks ago and finally am getting it into the mail to Sandy. It should arrive in Georgia around middle of next week.

Sunday, July 6, 2008

been MIA

but I am back. I can't remember whose RR I have here but it should have been mailed a while ago. Justin's graduation and party are done with so life is retirning back to normal. This RR will get mailed out the end of this week. Thanks for being patient.

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Ruth & Chris's RR's

Hi! I have finished Ruth's RR (finally), i don't know why it took me so long, it was a fun stitch, just took me longer than i thought it would. Then since i had already rec'd Chris's RR i thought i might as well plug away on that one too so i can just send them both on over to Karen. Chris's only took me one night to stitch. I really enjoyed stitching both of these RR's!

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Toni... mail went out to you today...

I got Sandy's in the mail to you at lunch and also sent you an email.  

I'm now caught up and have just Sharon's with me.  I'm determined to mail it on time.  :-)  

Monday, June 16, 2008


I dropped Chris' RR piece off at the post office yesterday - hopefully you'll get it in a couple of days.

Take care,

Monday, June 9, 2008

Hey Shelleen

Got a question for you on your RR. I've got the cutest snowman pattern I'd love to stitch but it's not like the previous stitched snowmen.

Will that be okay? The other snowmen are along the lines of Bent Creek type. This one doesn't have anything to do with Christmas. It's just a snowman peeking in a window.

Let me know what you think.


Sunday, June 8, 2008

Hi all

How's everybody? I just wanted to drop in and wish you all happy stitching.... RR or otherwise!

Here, have some summer flowers:
orchids 5_31_2008 013

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

I got the package from you Ruth!

I got Sharon's yesterday and can't wait to start it.

So, I've got 2 in my possession right now.  DH is under orders to make me stitch and get
my backlogged one finished quickly.

I've got Sandy's and Sharon's at the moment, and just passed Chris' along to Toni.
I think I was supposed to finish Sandy's first, but got them out of order.


Sunday, June 1, 2008

Sharon, I received your package...

Your package arrived Friday. Very cute envelope. To explain: Her "package" was a brightly decorated Christmas envelope. It contained both KarenNY's RR piece and KarenAZ's RR piece. Both are looking great so far. I should be able to stitch quickly on KarenNY's and get it mailed on time on June 15th.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

KarenNY said I can post a pic so here it is...

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

Hi Julie . . .

Just making sure you haven't sent Ruth's piece to me yet since I haven't received anything . . .


Saturday, May 24, 2008

Hey Sharon!

Hope you like my choice.....

Sharon RR Aug 2008_5_22

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Hey Sharon picS... note the "s"!

Sharon's already seen her May square:
5_16_2008 003

But here's a surprise for her. I decided the May one went so fast I'd do another one-- August. Here it is so far.
5_17_2008 008
Now, Sharon, I need some advice. The fabric is the same color as the thread for the gulls and lighthouse. I've switched the gulls to light grey. How would you like me to handle the body of the lighthouse? I was thinking of switching it to a light brick shade but I could do it in white and outline it? Whatcha think?

Chris, Karen and Karen

Hmmmm... I must be more stresseed or tired than I thought. The subject seems to resemble a bad tv show in the 80's - Newhart. "Hi I'm Larry. This is my brother Daryl and my other brother Daryl." Sorry - just had put it in.

Anyway - I have both Karen's piece done. KarenNY - Did you include all the extra buttons and things for yours? I couldn't find the one I needed. I hope I didn't lose it. I have pictures but I'm not sure if KarenNY wanted to see pics or not. Below is a picture of Karen AZ's RR.


Saturday, May 17, 2008


I FINALLY finished Karen NY's piece that is only 2 weeks late. I'm planning on stitching Karen AZ's this weekend and sending it all out at once - hopefully Monday. We'll see how the little man cooperates since daddy has guard drill and it's just mommy and Josh during the day.

I'll post when it's all done and in the mail.

Thursday, May 15, 2008

Hey Sharon.....

.... I'm having fun with your piece -- I think I'll finish it up tonite :) If I'd had a brain I'd have taken a progress pic for you. C'est la.

Friday, May 9, 2008

Julie's RR

Karen, you should be receiving Julie's RR anyday now. Here is a pic of what i stitched on it.

Thursday, May 8, 2008

Sandy and Sharon

It's here and dang is it cute!!!!!! I'll pull colors tonite.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008


I have Julie's RR in the mail to you tomorrow (Wednesday). I have had it ready since the 1st and things just got in the way.

Toni, i will let you know when the package arrives, hasn't yet.

hugs, karen

Hey Ruth!!!

I finally got the RR mailed today. I've only had it on my desk for what 3 weeks?


Sunday, May 4, 2008


I shipped Ruth's piece off to you today - priority mail.


Monday, April 28, 2008

Finished Shelleen's RR

Hey Shelleen. I finished your snowman tonight. He is a Bent Creek design. I hope you like him.

I'll get him into the mail to Sandy next day or so.

Friday, April 25, 2008

Finished . . .

Hi - I just finished Ruth's piece and will get it sent off to Karen. If I can figure out how to post a picture I'll do that.

Have a great weekend -

Sunday, April 20, 2008


KarenAZ's RR and will mail it to Sharon at the end of the week.

Friday, April 11, 2008

Finally started on Julie's RR

Okay, so when i first got it in the mail and was reading the instructions i just couldn't understand a thing in it. Well, i had a massive migraine (it was a real doozy) that day so i knew that was why. I took it out this afternoon and am now plugging away on it. very simple to read and follow the directions when you're feeling just fine. LOL I have 1 band done 3 more to go.

I love the colors you chose Julie. very pretty blues. when i finish it up i will post a pic. It is going with me to Flagstaff tomorrow so when i am just sitting in the room tomorrow night i have something to stitch.

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Chris' square is done!

sure, it's still off by one in one corner, but it's a long story....

4_06_2008 034

Monday, April 7, 2008

Hey Sharon!!!!

I finished your RR today while at work. Didn't take long at all. Hopefully, you'll like it.

I'm attaching the photo as well.

Give Josh a kiss on the nose from me.


Saturday, April 5, 2008


#*&$(*&%#^(*&^$#@ I'm one frelling thread off on the bottom dark shamrock. But no matter how I count it, the dang thing is "where it should be." Sigh.

4_04_2008 013

I'll figure it out, Chris. lol Maybe..... lol

Hey Julie

Ruth's RR arrived the other day. I've looked at the patterns and picked out the one I want to do, but probably won't get it started until next weekend. I'm leaving Monday morning (6:30am - ugh) for 4 days - business trip, no leisure - bummer . . . but it will be nice to get away for a couple of days. DH hates it when I'm gone which makes it hard to leave, but I really enjoy helping with our management meetings, so it's kind of a treat for me.

Am I rambling - probably - oh, well . . .

Hope you all have a great weekend!


Monday, March 31, 2008

Ruth's square done....

Here is the block I stitched for Ruth's RR.  DH chose which pattern to do, because I couldn't decide between them.  :-)

Toni... rotation on its way....

I'm very very very sorry to mail to so late.  Ruth's is on its way to you Priority Mail and should be there Wednesday at the latest.

It is a fun one to stitch!


PS - Ruth did you mail your next one?  I haven't gotten the next one and wasn't sure if you were waiting on me to mail to Toni, or if it got sidetracked.

Thursday, March 27, 2008

A finish for me - LHN Schoolgirl Lessons

Hi All! I just finished Schoolgirl Lessons by LHN on Tuesday night (started last thursday night). It was a quick fun stitch. I used 32ct Lakeside LInens V. Lentil and Belle Soie in Mer Bleu (1 full skein). Now to sit down with Julie's RR and take a look at it and try to get started on it soon.

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Hey Sharon.....

I received your package containing Shelleen's RR. Now to choose a pattern to stitch.

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

I finished Shelleen's RR

and I'll get it out hopefully today yet in the mail. Here's a picture of it so far.

KarenNYs RR

Got mailed today to Sharon. I also Have KarenAZ's RR sitting here waiting for me to stitch on :-)

Monday, March 17, 2008


Hey Shelleen, do you still like butterfly stuff? I found a pattern for you with butterflies if you would like it. I saw it and picked it up for you remembering you looking for butterfly things in MB.

hugs, karen

Toni... I'm running behind

I'm running a couple of days behind on finishing up round 1... I'll mail as soon as I can and let you know when I have it on its way.

Been a rough month, things should (or at least are supposed to) slow down now though.



Toni's RR is on its way to you. i should have mailed it sooner but it was just sitting here on my desk and i forgot. we have had a couple trying weeks here but things are getting somewhat back to normal. whew!


I missed the whole mailing date thing. And not because I was late -- simply because I totally forgot. lol What a loser.

So, Julie. You ready for a new robin?


Shelly's piece is on it's way to Arizona - I mailed it priority mail to you on Saturday.


Sunday, March 16, 2008

received and sending

I saw KarenNY over the weekend and she gave me KarenAZ's RR. Very cute! I will be sending KarenNY's to Sharon, hopefully tomorrow.

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Hey Sharon, here's a picture....

I stitched "March" snapper.

I'll be stopping by the Post Office shortly and it will be on its way to Sandy.

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Hey Sharon and Sandy...

I'll be mailing Sharon's RR tomorrow (Thursday). I'll take picture before packing it into envelope tomorrow and will post picture very soon.

Thursday, March 6, 2008

Hey KarenAZ

Hey Karen,

Email me. I saw your post on the Pals bb. Maybe I can help give you some insight since I've been in your shoes.

Hugs and prayers being sent!

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

Hey Ruth....

I mailed the package on Monday!! Hopefully, you'll have it in the next few days.

Please let me know when it gets there.


1 down and 1 mailed before time!!!! HURRAY!

Friday, February 29, 2008

Toni's RR finished

Toni's RR piece's are very small (actually smaller than mine, which i didn't think was possible) LOL. These were so much fun to stitch, very quick and satisfying and now i need to get this chart! Here are the 2 i did with the charms/beads attached.

Also, here is a finish of my own this week, it is Dog House sampler by LHN. The buttons i added, there is a big dog bone that is suppose to be stitched but i didn't want to stitch all that white. LOL this was one of my UFO's so that makes me really happy! thought i would share with you all.

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

I finished

KarenNY's RR last weekend and just love the pattern. Will mail this weekend to Sharon :-)

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Here's my latest finish....

Working on goodies for Jeremy Daniel. I've had this bib book for quite a while and just love these things.


Monday, February 25, 2008

Shelleen - I got your piece

I received your piece last week in the mail - Thursday or Friday. I have my pattern picked out and I've already started stitching. I'm hoping to get more stitched on it today if I can. Hopefully it'll go pretty fast. I'll posty a picture when I'm done if you'd like.


Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Here's ChrisNC's

Just got off the qsnaps!!! Just finished my name. Didn't take long at all. Started it yesterday at work and finished it last night at home.

So one down and how many more to go???


Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Karen in NY are you ready

for another RR? I have already finished Toni's. Like mine, they are quite small. I stitched 2 in one night. I will need to get that pattern, very cute ornaments.

Sunday, February 17, 2008

Hey Julie

I'm a moron. Do you suppose you could make me a copy of my instruction sheet for me? lol Yeah, I forgot that. Sigh.

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Julie -

Your piece came in the mail yesterday - it's going to be beautiful!


Monday, February 11, 2008

I got it Karen!

I got your rr today. Boy that was fast! Are you sure you want us to only stitch 2 squares? That would leave you with 10 to do when it came home. After all the green block stitching you did for us, I can at least stitch three squares for you.

Want to see Sandy's?

I finished my part on Sandy's last night. It really is pretty fun.
2_11_2008 006

If anyone needs specialty stitch maps just post. I know I have bunches and I bet some of the rest of us have quite a collection too!

Saturday, February 9, 2008

Karen G. - lookout for mail

HI Karen! my RR went out this morning Priority Mail to you.


Toni, you should have mine soon

I mailed mine out this morning, Priority so it should be there in a couple of days.  I did some quick last minute notes and packaging, let me know if I missed anything or if anything is confusing or unclear.


Friday, February 8, 2008

My RR going out tomorrow

Hi All! Karen it will be in tomorrow's mail to you (Sat 2/9/08 priority) I finally got mine ready to go (minus a few of the squares). I stitched the majority of them for the alphabet but got sooooo tired of the green so some of them still need the border stitched. You can stitch the ones that are already there or if you feel like it the other ones as well. They are all 26x26 so they are small. I will post a pic a little later of what i have done so far. Also, I have also enclosed another small piece of fabric for everyone to stitch their name and state on (pic for this one as well). I stitched "The Society" at the top then my name just follow along with your name. I am going to have this piece made into a wall hanging and am having this piece of fabric with everyone's name on it sewn into the backing fabric.

hugs, karen

Sandy and Sharon

Sandy -- My RR will get mailed tomorrow (Saturday). Was planning to have mailed it by yesterday but I have not been able to get away from work long enough to get to the post office.

Also to Sandy -- Would you like me to include some padded envelopes for your use in future mailings? :-)

Sharon -- I received your RR package yesterday. Gee that fabric looks familiar. I'll decide which square I'm stitching this weekend.

Another 5 1/2 hours or so of work and the weekend begins. WooHoo!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, February 6, 2008

Ruth and Toni....

Toni -
I'll be mailing on Saturday at the absolute latest.  I've been stuck at the data center all day during post office hours this week, so I'll get it out Saturday.

Ruth - 
I got yours today all safe and sound!


I didn't make it to the Post Office last night . . .

We had sleet and freezing rain on my way home from work - it took me 1-1/2 hours to go 13 miles . . . and today it's snowing like crazy - we are expected to get 12 inches on top of the 8 or 10 we already have - oh, joy! Needless to say, I decided to work from home today. I have a wonderful boss (who is traveling out of town) who usually suggests that I work from home when we have weather like this - he knows I'm just a wimp driving in bad snowy weather.

Anyway, I'm hoping to get the to the post office tomorrow with my RR - KarenAZ - I'll keep you posted!



Tuesday, February 5, 2008

I got mine out on time but....

it almost didn't survive the trip. Why do I have problems with the US Postal service? I even taped the top and bottom of the envelope to make sure nothing came out of there. But it appears that it came out the side! :0

I'm going to have to take Ruth up on her offer for some envelopes. :) :)

Hey Chris! Where's your RR?


Monday, February 4, 2008

OK , it's February 1st ( ish)

And I mailed my rr to Shelleen this afternoon. I stayed home from work today to get it done. LOL! I am always behind.


Friday, February 1, 2008

Want to see mine so far?

OK - I didn't get as far as I hoped to but here it is. Can you believe I screwed up the count on the border for February? Yep! Oh well - I "fixed" it pretty well I think. :) You'd think after 2 math degrees I'd be able to count right with 1 project anyway! LOL

Thursday, January 31, 2008

Here's what I just finished in the past 2 days!!

I just finished this one yesterday and hopefully will get it pressed and to the framer's this weekend. I've had going for several months and decided I'd best finish it before I start any baby stitching or the RR. I started stitching it quite a while ago and almost ripped all the off white out and started again but I thought I'd see what the framer could do to make the off white pop out.
Here's what I finished today. Started it yesterday. Nothing much going on at work these days (except us watching NCIS and stitching) (I taught my office mate to stitch)
One cloth diaper down and 11 more to go. Waste canvas + cloth diapers = sore elbow and fingers. But Jeremy Daniel is worth it I guess :) :)

Wanna see what mine looks like at the moment?

Well here she is --
1_21_2008 040

I'm still trying to decide if I want to fix my centering issue. Sigh

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Here's a question for everyone....

Who wants to see completion pictures for each rotation?

Would you like to see people post a picture of their stitching, and/or the entire piece when they are done?

Would you rather not see any updates on your Round Robin until it arrives back home?

Personally I would love to see pictures of completed pieces for mine.


Thursday, January 24, 2008


Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!!
Happy Birthday, dear Chriiiiissss!!!!
Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, January 19, 2008

How's this for a rota

Karen NY
Karen AZ
Karen NY

Anyone have any adjustment thoughts?

I'm getting there on getting my price ready. I picked the square I knew I didn't like so I could change all the words. lol That's only taken a couple weeks of debating and charting and recharting and stitching and ripping and debating and recharting. I'm back to stitching now and I think it'll stick this time. The only other thing I need to do is figure out one or two floss replacements -- since I changed the fabric a couple of the flosses called for are just invisible now -- we can't have that, can we?!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

I'm confirmed . . .

I've finally decided to go with the Advent Calendar - I cut my fabric last night. They are really, really easy charts to stitch up - would you all mind stitching up 2 each?



Tuesday, January 15, 2008

I finally chose a theme...

I finally chose what to do for our exchange.  And man it sure was hard.  I decided it would be so fun to have a needlework tool so to speak....
Judy Odell's Ultimate Needlebook.

I'm changing colors, and adding some minor stitching to the inside panels.  I think the bands can be easily divided up between everyone and everyone can sign  on the inside.  I think it will be fun to have a finished piece by so many friends that I can use all the time.

I spent the weekend going over the finishing to make sure I cut the fabric correctly, and began my part and grids.

Hello all -- how about a check in?

So, it's 2008 ACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone even ready for 2007 to start?

Officially there are 9 of us. Michele left of merry band. I've left her on the members list in case she suddenly has a change of heart. In the next oouple weeks I'll email you all to check that I have perfect addresses and get out a shipping rota to everyone.

Since we're a little less than a month away for our first mailing, how about a check up to see how thigs are shaping up---

I'm hopeless as usual. I have yet to cut my fabric, but I have stayed true to my original plan to do the LHN "inspiration/scripture" squares. There are 12 of them, but I'll work out the excess later. I will stitch a semi-central square (the one of the set that comes without exterior borders) and hopefully another one so that there are plenty of opportunities for you to take off in misc directions depending on your whims.

hugs and happy stitching,

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Well, i haven't started my RR yet and have changed my mind once again. I totally forgot i have the Christmas Alphabet by Prairie Schooler and am going to figure out how i want to lay it out and hopefully start it within the next couple days. Everyone can stitch 2 squares on this one, they are pretty small.

Hugs, Karen :)
