I started Karen's Round Robin tonight. I realized I didn't seem to have any Chamomile GAST in my stash, so I placed an order for some at Down Sunshine Lane - Amy is always so notriously quick with shipping, so I don't anticipate any problem with getting the floss soon. I started with the tree, and the house will go to its left... then it appears I will have a lot of sky left over - gulp! The blocks appear to be about 112 stitches x 112 stitches. This tree is 60 stitches and looks so wee. I will figure something out, and even ask Karen for her advice.
I heard from Cathy today that she has received my Summer Quaker Exchange from the SBEBB. What a relief! This was the first time that I have sent anything overseas since the USPS changed its rates and discontinued Global Priority Mail. I used the fixed rate Priority Mail, which is more expensive than it used to be. Instead of 3-5 days, this took 9. Oh, USPS!!! Anyhow, I was really thrilled when Becky emailed me Cathy's name for the exchange. I sent her a packet of goodies that can be seen on her blog. I was really happy when I looked at her wishlist and she needed some DMC... which was on sale at AC Moore that week! I had a short day at work and could not wait to get out that day and go buy a bunch of the floss she wanted - LOL!!! I agonized over what to stitch for Cathy, and finally chose:
Is anyone interested in buying some Ginghers? Mike has the 4" Cheetahs, Glorys, Julias... and the gorgeous new Marias.... all available! Let me know! His prices are low!!
Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and started Karen's Neighborhood RR (Group One)
