Completed Round Robin

Look what came back to me completed.... My "Winter Theme" Round Robin Sampler. Lovely... I'll be adding a little more to it and sewing it into a pillow when I get my sewing machine fixed. My children and I will definitely enjoy this piece in the winter.

It took exactly 1 year from the date I started it to the date the last stitcher to stitch it.

Places traveled:
  • Outside USA.... Netherlands (twice)
  • USA... Washington (twice)... Michigan (once)... Colorado (once)... Texas (once)... Nebraska (once)
Check back for updates.

Blue & Yellow ATC's

I created 2 new ATC's  this week. I tried a new technique of using watercolors, pastels, and my Sizzix machine. Challenging.... But I think with a little more practice, it can be perfected.
