A birthday and a start of my RR!

I hear from Rita that my birthday present to her arrived and she is very happy! Rita loves anything autumn so I stitched her an autumn leave scissor fob by Heart in Hand and sent some other goodies as well. Here are some pics:

I joined my first RR recently and I finished up my section of it and wanted to share it. It's called "An Emblem of Love" by Ellen Chester. I decided to stitch it on 36 ct. White Edinborough, over 2, and use WDW Wavy Navy. I think it turned out well. Margaret's piece will be on the way to me shortly so I am excited to stitch on her piece as she is doing hers in red!

Now mine will will travel to Edgar's house next month for him to stitch a section. Then once he is finished he will send it on to the next person for them to stitch a section, etc. I am really excited to see this progress through the months and look forward to it returning at the end of May.

I just think the whole idea of a round robin is so neat, having others from all around the world stitch on your piece and you stitch on theirs and knowing when it comes back home to you that its been all over the world in different homes, its just really neat! I am going to ask each of the RR members to put their initials somewhere on the section they stitched. Carol R. is having us do that on her's and I thought that was a great idea so I am doing as is Margaret too.

I also noticed while stitching my initials over 1, that my diopeter lens (1.75) on my daylight is not strong enough for over 1 on 36 ct anymore so I plan to purchase a stronger lens next month when I hit the road with my stitch group for our roadtrip. Not sure what strength I will get but I just know I need a stronger one!

This weekend I am going to work on a birthday gift and start work on another exchange so I have my weekend stitching plans all set!

I do hope everyone has a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. I do appreciate it.

Take care and happy stitching,
Wendy Jo
