Emblem of Love Round Robin

The Emblem of Love Round Robin I have been participating in over the past several months is winding down.

Mine arrived home from Margaret last week and its gorgeous. Its stitched on 36 ct. white edinborough over 2 with Crescent Colors Wavy Navy.

I received Edgar's round robin and was the last person to stitch on his and will be mailing his home to him today.

Now since I haven't signed up for any other exchanges I can start working on some things for myself! I just don't know where to start. I have so many patterns that its kind of mind blogging. Guess I will just pull stuff out and see what looks good!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy stitching.

New Fat Quarters and A Belated Birthday Gift

I received a belated birthday gift from Carol yesterday. It's a beaded scissor fob made with REAL jade beads. It is so pretty! Plus she added a heart charm and I love hearts! I have been searching for my silver dovos and they are missing...mmmm so I will find another pair of silver scissors and give this beaded scissor fob a home!

Thanks so much Carol. Its absolutely gorgeous. (Sorry for the poor pic...its very dark and rainy again here today)

I joined Carolyn's board and participated in the fat quarter exchange and received fat quarters from...CAROLYN! She sent a wide variety which I really like as these are some great ones I can really put to use!

Thanks so much Carolyn!!!

I have been working on Edgar's rr (Emblem of Love). I am the last one to stitch on Edgar's and then I send it home to him. Its been enjoyable to stitch on everyone's rr as they have used a variety of threads (silks, etc.) so its given me an opportunity to try new ones.

Rex and I are getting new kitchen flooring put in on Friday. We decided to go with wood so I can't wait for that to be put in. I think it'll warm up our kitchen alot. Which is kind of dark right now.

Well, I think I will close for now and visit a few blogs and answer some e-mails and get back to some housework before stitching.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching.
