I received Wendy's rr from Rowyn! It looks beautiful. I also want to thank Carol for making every one a fob! I chose the green one! My son Jacob liked it too!
I'll hopefully start stitching this weekend!

Here is a sneak peek of how my piece looks with my vine and initials. I really like how the color combination turned out. I just wish I had different initials. Being a V-squared makes it look kind of "matchy-matchy". Oh well! I will be placing this in the mail to Wendy in Canada tomorrow. I hope I didn't miss anything!

I have completed my re-stitch. As you can see I frogged the green initials and date and re-stitched using the same grey as the little rabbit. I've no idea why the fabric looks grey - poor lighting I expect - it's actually lambswool! I will mail it out to Edgar this weekend.
Thank you to all who have to re-stitch - it's much appreciated.

Here's a picture of my re-start. The fabric is 35ct lambswool linen and the silk is Vicki Clayton's Imperialosity - 1 strand over 2. I was going to order in something new but decided to go with whatever I had in my stash. Haven't quite decided whether to stitch the rabbit and maybe accents in grey. If so, I will frog the initials and year and replace them too. Hopefully I should finish my section for the mailing deadline!

Donna's RR in in the USPS on it's way to Rowyn and should arrive in the next week or so. I am getting the feeling that we are all in agreement that a re-stitch is the way to go - I am getting together the silk and linen for my part.
