Welcome to My Neighborhood!


My neighborhood RR is off in the mail today to Carol. I'm excited to be participating with the Group 3 stitchers in this, my first ever RR!

I am using 32 ct Vintage Light Examplar from Lakeside Linens. My blocks are 70 X 70 stitches. When it is returned to me, I'm planning to stitch a border in between the squares and around the piece (just didn't have time to do it before sending it off!)

My design is based on elements from LHN's Lakeside Lodge and Even Tide's Minnesota needleroll. I'm asking my neighbors to try and incorporate something in their designs that is significant to their area (city, state, or country). In my square, I stitched my house on a lake (Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes) and included a loon (our state bird).


I can't wait to decide what to stitch in Erin's neighborhood once I receive it!
