Nicki's LHN RR and Scissors!

I've been working on Nicki's LHN RR on and off for a few weeks now. Sometimes when I receive an RR to work on, I know exactly what I want to stitch on it. With others, I ponder it for awhile and then stitch. Nicki's was kind of a work in progress - I'd stitch a little, then ponder some, stitch a little more, ponder a little more....I'm happy with the end result.

Nicki's theme is friendship/house and garden. She wanted a house in the middle square and then lots of garden themes in the adjoining squares. My design is primarily taken from the City Stitcher Country Stitcher chart (what better example of friendship?) and the Two Sheep freebie. The birds and the crow are from other LHN charts. I like it. I hope Nicki does too!



Got Sarah?


Got Roberta?


I'm pretty certain that Sarah is a JoAnn exclusive. They started showing up at our local JoAnn stores on Thursday last week. Roberta is available through needlework stores or you can obtain one at Mike and Carol's Internet Store.

Great square and a wonderful idea for a RR. Hmmm I'll have to store that one away for later contemplation.

Enjoy your new scissors. Despite your tempting I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need one of ever pair made. lol It's hard convincing though.

I love the Sarah's and I'm so hoping that they have them at my Joann's I was there last week and they didn't have them...but my Aunt's name was Sarah and I'd like to have them (green was her color).

I absolutely love, love, love Nicky's RR Cathy...you're additions was perfect!

Nicki said...

I do love it! It's fantastic :) Than you so much. I love the fact the ladies are holding hands :)

I've done yours too but I'm not sure if my initials are too big? Any preferences? :)
