First Finish and Round Robins

SaI have my first finish of the year! A quick one, Lizzie Kate Live, Laugh, Love. I have been organizing my threads and I came across this pattern.  I just had the urge to stitch it. It took me about 3 nights, I think.  I finished it into a wall hanging ornament. I just need some Command hooks to put on my wall. I still need practice on measuring and cutting. I have the newer version I will do soon.

My Round Robins came home.  I am not sure how to finish them off. I think they are too big for a Christmas tree ornaments. I hand-dyed the fabrics myself. The ladies did a fantastic job on them. Thank you so much!

This is Whitney's round robin. Hers is Lizzie Kate Spring Sampler.  I stitched the last row.  It's on its way home.

In November, I stitched a Halloween freebie for the second time.  I had loved the pattern. Plus a friend had stitched and I loved the fabric choice she made with hers, I just had to get the same fabrics. I just couldn't get it out of my mind. I am going make it into a flat fold.  The picture is not doing its justice. The green is so much brighter.

I am stitching a few Valentine exchanges. Than I will go back to Lady Slipper.  It is going get colder next week. We getting an Arctic cold front and temperatures are suppose to drop into the teens, maybe single digits. I can't wait for Spring. I am going stay warm and stitch.

Congrats on your finish! What great round robins and you did a wonderful job dying all the fabric. The Halloween design looks super and I can just imagine the green sparkly fabric. I also downloaded the free chart. Thanks for the tip!

What a beautiful collection of pieces - I'm so glad that your RR pieces have come home safe and sound. I love the Hallowe'en piece (opalescent fabrics are so yummy, and it's an adorable design). It's all great.

Hi Vicky love all of your stitching and your hand dyed fabrics are really pretty. Maybe you could do flat folds?

All your stitching looks fantastic. The fabric colours that you hand dyed are perfect for the designs you picked. Why not make your RR pieces into flatfolds.
