RR border completed, new bathroom and Ruby !

I have finally finished my RR border - it's for a Round Robin I'm in with Tina, Julie and Hazel on Needlecraft Haven. I used Lizzie Kate designs and have re-plotted them. The finished RR will be a cushion for my little C1 - so it has to be pink of course :) You can see the design on my post Jan 4, and this is my border (I just have my 'a' to do, I'm waiting for postie as I ran out of thread)


Fabric - 32ct evenweave in white
Thread - DMC 335 & 309
I haven't started stitching as with only four people it would mean the last person has no choice - I'll do the last piece when it arrives home.

Needlecraft Haven is growing strong -I cannot believe there are over 70 members in just three weeks and over 45 of them are regular visitors. There is so much going on - 2 RRs, 5 SALs, 2 monthly activites and a MEET UP in March. There is also a new exchange just launched - it's allvery exciting and certainly keeps me on my toes LOL

The last two weeks at home have been busy as we've had the bathroom upstairs replaced. It was the original one and we've been here 25 years this summer. It's just perfect :)



The only problem was when DH did the painting yesterday and today.

I was only trying to help Dad - honest
That's about all my news - my health is slowing improving (not helped by a slip on the ice at school on Thursday - but no damage). I even managed to walk Ruby yesterday; first time since mid November.

Thanks for popping by, happy stitching.

Typical, we had that problem when we had cats - no furballs to snuggle up to at the moment. Good start on the RR.

Julie said...
