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!
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.
