Bird Round Robin finished at last

I finally got the last part of my Bird Round Robin in the mail yesterday, although it has been finished for a little while. And mine is on it's way home to me. I am so excited about it and I can't wait to see what the other ladies have stitched on it.

I am almost finished with my "Older, Better" piece. I have been working on it for most of this month. It is all done except for the backstitching on two of the ladies. I haven't decided what I will do with it after it's done. Then, I have several WIP's to choose from for my next project, or, I can start the birth announcement I am planning on doing for my niece, who has a baby due in October. I already have the kit, and have had it for a while now. I am also going to be doing some sewing for her because she wants me to make some crib sheets for her, and a quilt and curtains for her nursery, and bumber pads as well. I told her I would do that for her when she was pregnant with her twins, which were born premature this time last year,which she lost within the first hour after they were born. She had me keep the materials until "next time". I am happy to report that all is going well this time.

Not a lot going on here this week. I have been making progress on my latest WIP. Not been doing much other than that-mostly working every day at the bank. We had pretty nice weather for a couple of days and then it got cold and rainy again, but I understand it's supposed to be nice over the weekend.

Latest Round Robin Finish


I am finally finished with the Bird Round Robin that I have been working on. I got the Cedar Waxwing in the mail last week, and the little Chickadee is ready to go in the mail tomorrow. I have also put on a photo of what I am working on now. It is called "We're Not Older, We're Better", by JanLynn, and it is a lot of fun to work on. I only started it a couple of days ago, and have already made quite a lot of progress on it. I have really enjoyed the Round Robin, but I am glad to be back at work on some of my own things for a while. I have decided to take a break from RRs for a while.

I don't seem to get on here very much but I just don't seem to have a lot of time after working all week.

Spring is trying to come here, but it's been pretty cold the last couple of days and it was spitting snow yesterday. Thank goodness the flowering trees are all still doing ok. We had a freeze last year right after they bloomed and it ruined them.

Well. I am off agin to go work on my stitching some more.
