The blocks I sent out all contained a silk image of a Victorian woman in some activity - walking, reading, playing piano, etc. The ladies were each given a piece of vintage lace and the silkie with the block and told they could place them as they preferred. What lovely blocks I got back! Five of the six were completed, with the sixth one waiting for me to complete it. I plan to do a wall hanging for our bedroom.
I asked for low volume color - nothing too dark or loud - as my bedroom is in shades of cream and gold.

As you can see, they are exquisite. I still have the lavender block (below) to stitch myself
And then there is the work I did for others in this round robin. I already posted the work I did for Gerry here, the work I did for Connie here, and the work I did for Lisa here. Now finally, here are the remaining contributions I stitched.

So that catches me up on completed round robins as far as blogging goes. I have current RRs and some Angel work that I did, plus I hope to finish up my CQ Journal Project piece before the turn of the NEXT century. Ha!
Also, I have given my new stitching studio a test drive, and I LOVE it. I still have some shelves to organize before I take pictures, but I hope to do that this coming week. Next couple days are devoted to getting out some custom orders for my Etsy shop.
But I will leave you with a picture of Darla and Alfie - doing what they do best; resting. Of course, they are also amazing at running and playing, cuddling, eating, pooping, and thundering through the house at 3 a.m. What would we do without our furkids?
