Round Robin - finished!

Hey all - I'm really excited to say that my round robin is complete and being mailed off to the framers today. I had to really force myself to finish it -- I had no creative oomph left after 2 years of these squares -- but I'm so glad I did. I'm not crazy about the border, it's a little 80s for me but oh well it was fast and I don't think the piece needed anything more elaborate. I am thinking of having a nice bird's eye maple frame on it but I'll email you guys the framer suggestions when she sends them to me.
Thanks again for a great experience, I've loved working with all of you!

Katrina's Revisited

Hi All
Katrina and I did an extra block swap... I had a hard time coming up with something new, I thought the piece needed a yellow house but I was dithering over which one and then I spotted this french freebie.

Anyway I hope it's not too bright and that you like it, Katrina! I echoed the hill and the fence from the house on the far side of the row to help with the symmetry.

Jane C.'s Revisited!

Jane C. and I also did a swap to finish a block on our pieces :-). I finished her piece this weekend. What fun to revisit this round robin. It's just gorgeous. Hope you like it Jane!

Georgie's RR!

Thankfully Susan found Georgie's piece. It is now in an envelope and ready to make it's way registered mail back to Australia :-). Lynn is going to stitch on it and then she will send it home to Georgie. I stitched another block for Georgie and she's going to stitch one more for me. I've posted a picture of the whole piece and the newest block I stitched.

Spooked by Jane!!!

Ta-daaaaa!!! Here's Jane's RR - I was tempted to stitch witches all over this piece because I like Francoise Marchardier's "Un vol de sorcieres" but refrain from it. The house is from Bright Needles Design (Halloween Wishes) and the tree is taken from PS Pumpkin Patch (Bk 140). This will be on the way today 22nd May to Jane.

Pic is a little smooshy (it was draped on the back of my couch, and I was trying to keep the Smudgester from hopping on it)

What I stitched on Georgie's

Here is Moonlit Garden, again... I added some more colors this time since the last time I stitched it I got sick of the oranges. I loooove the color of your linen Georgie, it makes everything pop!
You can get a look at my gravestone here.

My RR made it home!!

When I got home yesterday evening Susan's package was waiting for in front of the door. Yeahhhh! My RR made it home.

Wow it is so beautiful! I had seen photos here but the real piece does not do justice to it at all. Many, many thanks for all your beautiful stitching!!! This will be a treasure.

Have a nice weekend!

Susan's RR on it's way

This is the last RR I have to stitch on until I get Georgie's... Anyway here it is... you can get a look at the whole lower right corner here

I stitched the Friendship sampler from Hillside Samplings... I ended up with a funny space under the gold house so I decided to stitch a row of roses. I hope you like it, it looks odd now but maybe when you stitch the rest of it it will blend better!

Can't believe it's the end of this project for now! But I also can't wait to see mine.

I received Georgie's RR

It is incredible!! I'd love to dig in and start stitching right away, but with Nashville right around the corner, I won't be able to get much done til I get back.

Jane B' RR ready to travel!

I did finish stitching on Jane her RR before I left for my trip but I didn't want to send it out during the holidays. I will mail it to Georgie tomorrow!!
Jane, I stitched Halloween Alley from Pickle Barrel designs and I added the witch and some stars from When witches go riding from the Prairie Schooler. I hope you like it!

The whole piece!

Karin's RR on its way

Hello dear ladies..... this is a house from the Prairie Schooler leaflet Farm Fresh. As you might imagine, I went a little nutso with the chicks and chickens and roosters :) but it was fun!
I also stitched this house on someone else's but I changed it up this time around with a different grapevine border (also PS). I absolutely adore this piece! This might be my new RR fave.

Here's a shot of the whole thing after 9 rounds...
