Donna's RR

Here's how Donna's RR is looking so far! I know it's not due for posting for ages yet but im keen to get it finished so that i can work on some other things without this being at the back on my mind so ive been stitching on this a lot recently. I am using LHN's (obviously!) "The Counting House." I hope you like it so far Donna!

Lizzy's RR Arrived

Hi Lizzy,
Your RR has arrived in perfect condition. The linen you are using is really lovely!!!! I've already charted out my name and SF, I will be doing Savannah. My fathers family has been in Savannah since the 1730's so I feel a certain pull to that particular chart. I'll post a picture on Tuesday, as we are off on Monday.

Take care,

Lizzy's Dear Diary Themed RR...

Hi Everyone...

I finally got my RR finished and posted off to Edgar...

Dear Diary Series by Little House Needleworks...
Abigail Winslow...
Stitched on 28ct R&R Iced Cappuccino...
With DMC and WDW threads...

I'll add the border to my RR when it comes back home to me... I just couldn't make up my mind which one I wanted to use... Although I did decide on a colour... I'll be using Crescent Colours Almost Auburn ... I couldn't decide where I wanted to put my signature crow/blackbird... you know I just have to add him to everything I stitch... ;-) I may add him under *Lizzy* ... who knows? So I left off my last name for now... I'll have plenty of time to decide what to do whilst you all are stitching on it! :-)

I so enjoyed stitching Abigail Winslow... All of Diane's designs are such a joy to stitch... so very relaxing and peaceful... :-)

Oh, and piccys are clickable...

Tootles for now...

Love in Stitches...

Janice's Autumn Themed RR ...

Janice's RR arrived safe and sound with me and I thought I'd post a piccy so everyone can see how lovely it is thus far... :-) I love the border she's using...

I've already decided what I'll be stitching for you Janice... Just need to sort out how I'll arrange it all and I'll be ready to start... :-) I'm looking forward to stitching on your RR...

Love In Stitches...

How is everyone doing?

Update on Edgar's RR, I'm getting ready to add a snowman next! I hope you like what I'm gonna do for you!

Lizzy, how are you doing? Haven't heard and was hoping everything is fine and you are not sick! I'm so glad for the extra time, hope everyone is enjoying that.

What's everyone doing for Labor day? We have a memorial dinner to honor John's dad. He passed away 3 years ago. We miss you James! Jason sure could use you now! Grandaddy James was a welder. Jason's taking welding this year at school.

Have a great week everyone!

New timeframe for everyone!

I've sent everyone a email concerning our stitching time frame. I feel we would best be served to have a 8 week time frame instead of 6. I hope that is alright with everyone. Due to a problem mailing overseas, I want to have plenty of mailing time in addition to stitching time. So email me with any questions or concerns!

I so want everyone to have an enjoyable experience with the rr.


I have one tree done on your linen Edgar! Wahoo!

Cheryl's RR

Just to let you all know that Cheryl's RR has made it safely down to England. Now I'll really need to start thinking about what to stitch! Hopefully I'll sort that out over the weekend.

In the Post......

Hey Ladies,

I have posted my RR to Donna via Priority Mail so it should be there in the next few days. My Plan was to use UPS but changed my mind at the last second as I needed to work a bit more on the piece before I let go......

Thank you for all the nice things everybody said about my piece, it really means a lot to me as I haven't really been stitching all that long. I have included a short letter about me and my stitching to go along with the RR. I can't wait to get started on yours Lizzy.

Take care,

Cheryl's update

I will be posting my RR off (first class) to Lesley tomorrow or Tuesday. We have so many postal strikes here at the moment that i have no idea how long UK post is taking these days so posting sooner rather than later is probably best.

I won't have my square finished but i never really planned to anyway. Here is where im up to with it so far. It's LHN's Daisy Lane Cottage. Im hoping to finish the roof and the front door before it leaves me on its round the world tour!
Donna i am looking forward to receiving yours!

The border is coming along

I started working the border for the HF RR and think I am really liking the oak leaf and acorn corner motif. I also have added a squirrel. I want to get as much of this done so that I can get this in the UPS system tomorrow so that Donna can get it before the 12th.

Here is a close up of the border. This will run around the entire piece.

Take care,

Hi all, just logging on to let you know that my RR was posted yesterday. Janice, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know when it arrives. I'll be back online properly next week.
