Finished my RR

Tonight I finished my block for my Hello Neighbor Round Robin Group 3 :-) I love how it came out! It is so tiny - the entire sampler will be about 10" x 10" when finished, as my blocks are only 60 x 60 on 36 ct linen. I hope that WalMart is open tomorrow (Independence Day here) - if it is, I will pick up a padded mailer and Mike will mail this off to Annemarie on Thursday morning.

Vonna let me know that she received my birthday package today, which included this wee fob. The motifs in this design all make me think of Vonna - the house for the neighborhood rr, the sheep because she loves to stitch them, the flowers because she is planning a garden, the hearts because I love her...

Thank you for the nice comments about my finish of Bordeaux Sampler :-) I have decided that since I also finished Paradigm Lost, I will re-add Mermaid Heaven to my rotation and add something new. I will squeeze Mermaid Heaven in starting next week, as I plan to try to start Karen's Neighborhood Round Robin tomorrow...

To my US friends - Happy Fourth of July!!!!

Stitched on today: Started a gift, and finished my Hello Neighbor RR Group 3

My daughter was recently bored and googling family names. In the process she discovered your blog and how last fall you posted names of stitchers you had lost contact with. Well....here I am and I'm still stitching!
