My Neighborhood Round Robin is Home!


What a treat delivered by Ken, the mailman, today! My first Neighborhood Round Robin has finally come home :-) This RR started in March of 2006. I really like it, and I want to thank Annemarie, Barbara, Su, Veronica, Dianne, Rachael and dear Becky for their lovely work on it. I need to stitch the center of the neighborhood and walkways between the houses now. I will be sending thank you notes and gifties as soon as I can. I am so overjoyed to see it home safe and sound - thank you all!

And... busy Ken also delivered these really adorable Fair and Square squares from An - who knows me so very well! They are just the cutest! Thanks An! She also sent me some yummy green apple tea and a diffuser, but those are in the kitchen already since I have already started to enjoy the tea ;-)

I am happy to have great mail to share today... as I am again fretting over a package I mailed out via Priority on April 7th to a country not terribly far away which usually doesn't take long to receive... but nothing yet... sigh...

Stitched on today: SBEBB Garden Theme Exchange

Finally is right! It's a pretty NRR too!
I still have a blank spot I have to fill in on mine, but I really love it and will do it as summer project.

RR looks great. Can't wait to see what you put in the middle and your pathways. Yours is the first RR that I have seen basically complete. Very nice.

Love the exchange. So very cute.

Oh... I'm a little bit jealous (but a whole lot happy) that your NRR is home. I hope that I'll be able to say the same someday soon.

BTW; what was the theme for your neigbourhood RR?
