Working on an RR Piece

First I have to say I am so happy with the new look of my blog! I never knew there were so many templates out there! I also have added thumbnail photos & progress bars for all of my WIP's on the right frame! I think this is such a great feature!!! And I want to thank Ashley for pointing me in the right direction to get the instructions for how to do this, as well as Meari for posting the how to instructions on her blog!!!

Ok, so yes I am involved in my very first Round Robin, as you have seen on a previous blog entry. I received in the mail my first piece to stitch on for another person. Her theme is Angels. The angel she has stitched is so beautiful! And I selected an angel from the Lavender & Lace/Told in a Garden Christmas Angels set. I chose to stitch the 1999 Christmas Angel. It will fit perfectly in the stitching area size that she chose. I am posting a photo of what it will somewhat look like when it is finished. Of course I have just started working on it, so this is not my work that I am posting a photo of. But I will be sure to post a finished photo once I am finished!

Gramas Touch a Heart Progress ...

Well here we are with nothing left but backstitching to do!!! There are 2 colors for the back stitch ~ the blue will be done with 3 strands & the charcoal will have backstitching with 3 strands & with 1 strand when it's all finished. Then it's just time for washing, ironing & framing!!! :~) I was thinking I would frame this in a white or wood colored frame.

Who Are You?

So who reads my blog?

1. As a comment on this post, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember! And if we've never met in real life, leave me a comment of your favorite post I wrote and why it was your favorite.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually really funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Hope you're having an excellent day!
