I just got Shelleen's snowmen in the mail yesterday. LAst round! Hooray!

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Those of you going to MB.......

have a great time! Say hello to everyone for me. I am going away myself to Cape May , NJ with some old Pals for a stitching getaway. I am taking Sharon's rr with me to work on. Fill me in on the details when you get back. Just think, we will all be on the ocean this weekend!

Friday, October 2, 2009

Ok, check in time again......

Roll call --

Who has what and how's it going?

I'll start-- I have no RRs but I have a severe case of start-itis.

I have had a "duh" moment ...

I have both KarenAZ and KarenNY pieces ... I stitched on KarenAZ's a l-o-o-o-ong time ago and had forgotten.

I finished KarenNY's piece last night, and when I picked up KarenAZ's piece, I thought "hmmm, this looks really familiar" - because I already stitched on it!

I have to laugh at myself because I told Ruth that I hadn't seen KarenAZ's piece. Sorry Ruth!

So - for those of you who have yet to reach the wonderful age of 52 - this what you have to look forward to!

I hope to get both pieces to KarenAZ tomorrow - or as soon as I REMEMBER to buy an evelope!

Karen NY

Karen, watch your mailbox, Sharon's RR is on its way to you! Now i just need to get cracking on Shelleen's and get it out to you. After Shelleen's i only have yours left when i get it from Toni.

Hi from Canada!

Well, I have "The Karen Club" here with me in Montreal. KarenAZ, your RR will be in the mail back to you either next Friday or the week after... probably the week after being as I fugure my desk will have been destroyed while I was gone. KarenNY, if the lighting were any better in the convention center yours would be returning to you at the same time. What can I say, I need serious light.

How's everybody doing?

Monday, July 20, 2009


I just sent off to you this morning - Priority Mail - 2 RR's - Shelleen's and Sharon's.

Have fun stitching!


Monday, June 29, 2009

I received Shelleen's and Sharon's pieces last week while I was out of town - also mine!

Thanks, Julie, for sending them along.

Have a great week -


Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Julie ...

Would you mind sending along to me the pieces you have - finished or not ... I'd like to have mine back.

Another check in ---

Happy Tuesaday to you all! Having a good day?

I thought, as we sit here balanced between spring and summer, we should check in and see where we're at. Who's got what and what's left to do. We should be closing in on being done.... kinda exciting, huh?

So, here's my status:
Currently I don't have any pieces. I recently sent Toni's off to Julie.

I have stitched on:
ChrisNC -- Sweetheart Tree hearts
KarenAZ -- Prairie Schooler Christmas alphabet
KarenNY -- Elizabeth Designs Nature's Alphabet
SandyGA -- specialty-stitch band sampler
SharonPA -- Bent Creek snappers row
ShellenNY -- non-Christmasy snowmen
ToniIL -- JBW Advent calendar

I have not sitched on:
JulieGA -- Judy Odell's Ultimate Needlebook

Have a lovely -- may your needles be blessed with peace, speed, and no amphibians!,

Friday, May 1, 2009

Hi all

Hey there, just wanted to drop in and wish you all a happy May!

Here's hoping the stitching fairy blesses our needles this month.

Sunday, March 29, 2009

Hey Julie

Just checking to see if you were able to mail off the RR you had finished.

Can we do a status check to see who has what?

I don't have any - and haven't had any in a couple of months ...

Black hole is letting one free.

I can't offer enough apologies for becoming the black hole of the Round Robin.   Words just can't express it.

Andy however, literally forced me to spend time stitching to make up for my terrible service to the round robin and get something done.   He told me the house could stay a pig-sty for one more weekend, I had to stitch.

I have gotten one done and will be mailing it off this week.  Another is half-way done and Andy is right there  cracking the whip to keep me going.    

I'm really trying to get my stuff moving.   You are all free to poke and flog me over my horrible communication and work.   Work has become a bear and  instead of using my stitching to help with the stress (which i used to do), if I'm not working extra hours when i get home, I'm just shutting down.   Andy is helping me get my priorities straight and live up to my obligation much better.   It is taking time, but I am slowly getting the stitching underway.

Shelleen...... or possibly another of you

Might you be missing a pair of scissors, a November magnet, a December magnet, one magnet back, and a butterfly scissor fob?

Found em!

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Hey Julie

I sent KarenAZ's piece off to you yesterday - priority mail. Please let me know when you get it.

Progress pictures for Ruth and Julie

Both Ruth and Julie let me know that they would like to see progress pictures of their RR.

Here is a progress picture of the main part of Julie's RR:

Julie, the seperate pieces for the other spine and the needle keep have also been stitched, I just didn't include them in the photo. I'll be continuing the section on the left, the part that has the "over 1" section. I'm going out of town this weekend and will take it with me, but not sure how much stitching I'll get done on things I take with me. The section I'll be stitching should not take too long so I hope to have it done within a couple of weeks.

And here is progress picture of Ruth's RR:

For those that haven't received it yet, there are 5 designs remaining, one for the empty spot to the right and four that form the top row. I did lay the remaining designs on the fabric in their respective spot and have decided which one I'll be stitching. As soon as I get Julie's RR done, I'll be working on Ruth's RR.

Monday, February 16, 2009

Hey Ruth!!!

Be on the look-out for Toni's RR. I hope to get it out to you this week. Finished my 2 squares last night.


Friday, February 13, 2009

One package outgoing and another incoming....

To Toni - I finally got package with KarenAZ's RR into the mail to you. I was going to mail it to you weeks ago, but one thing after another happened and I had it way too long. I believe JulieGA is still working on getting caught up, so instead of sending KarenAZ's RR to JulieGA, it's on its way to you. You and Julie are the last 2 to stitch on it before it goes home to KarenAZ, so you will need to send it back to JulieGA when you're finished with it.

And SharonPA's package arrived on my front porch today containing both JulieGA's and RuthCA's RRs. Looking at the mailing order, JulieGA's RR is first. I will get started on it tonight.

To JulieGA and RuthCA, do you want to see progress pictures before I get started?

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Checking in ...

to see who has what pieces! I haven't anything to stitch on in quite some time.

Have a great day -

Sunday, February 1, 2009

Sandy's is done

and I am hoping to send it on Friday or Saturday.

Sunday, January 25, 2009

I'm stitching!!!

I brought my mom home (to our house) from the hospital yesterday and I'm actually getting some stitching in today. I should finish Julie's and hopefully get some time in on Ruth's too. Would either ofyou like progress pics when I finish?

I should have at least one to send to Chris this week - if not 2. Yea! :-)

Whose i we all still need to stitch on......

I have figured it out, i think that i still have to stitch on:

KarenNY (i think)

If anyone has any one of these as an extra one in their pile of to do's i wouldn't mind getting one and returning it to the right person to stitch next. I just haven't had one in months and am trying to close up on certain exchanges and RR's.

Any RR's needing stitching on by me?

Hi! Happy New YEar everyone! Well, i haven't had a RR in quite awhile and was wondering if there is one out there that needs to be stitched on by me that might be able to be sent to me? When finished i will send to the correct person to stitch on it. It's just been a few months since i have had my hands on one and hoping to get some finished up soon.
