Finished! Finito! Fertig!

Will you dance with me? I put the final stitches in BOAF Red Reindeer last night and it is now finished!


Birds of a Feather - Red Reindeer

Weeks Dye Works Fibers

Then I must also share with you my Hello Neighbor Round Robin. This little beauty started circulating in July of 2007. I asked each stitcher to incorporate something significant to where they live into their square. My square is in the middle and I thought the LHN Lakeside Lodge design reminded me of Minnesota (10,000 lakes). Over the past almost two years it traveled to Carol in New Hampshire, Michelle in Texas, Katrina in Colorado, Judith in the Netherlands, Kathy in Arizona (and Ontario!), Erin in New York State, and Annemarie in the Netherlands. We had one problem stitcher in our group so when my RR came home to me late last year, I had one empty square. Dear Vonna kindly offered to stitch it for me, and so the final square is from Vonna in Indiana!


Hello Neighbor Round Robin
32 count Vintage Light Examplar

I intend to stitch a simple border in between the squares and around the entire piece. When I get that done, I'll share one more photo with you! Isn't it gorgeous? I'm grateful to all my online stitching friends who stitched on this beauty!

Wow, Cathy, your PN piece is just beautiful. I've been seeing so many pictures on blogs that are screaming at me to start them. This is definitely one of them. Your Neighborhood RR is also gorgeous. Great job!

It looks gorgeous. Congratulations. It was a real pleasure sharing this RR with you and I hope we stitch together again one day.

Red Reindeer is a very beautiful piece, congratulations on finishing it. What will you be doing with it? Frame it?
I had already seen that wonderful RR on Vonna's blog. It's one of these RRs that could motivate you to take part in one, as everything goes together so harmoniously.

It turned out fantastic! I'm so glad you were able to get Vonna to stitch in your blank square!! Love it! Funny, I was just thinking about my block yesterday because the bluebonnets are in bloom again.
