Just a quick post......

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!

Off to Canada...

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!

Carol's re-stitch on it's way to SF

I put my re-stitched piece in to the mail today Edgar. Please let me know when it arrives - I don't want another one to bite the dust!

Carol's re-stitch

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.

Donna's RR has arrived...

... thanks Edgar!

Once I am finished who will I mail it too? With the restitch I am mailing to Donna, but there will still be one square left on Donna's so presumably I should mail to Valerie?

My re-start

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!

In the mail - and preparing for the re-stitch

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.
