Fabric · Joan Elliott Round Robin

Sweet little Bird and some stash


Over the weekend I finished the little bird in the cherry blossoms on the left side of my Round Robin.

Isn’t he just the sweetest? I had a heck of a time trying to get a good photo.  Even in today’s beautiful sunlight, so I apologize for the bad photo.  I wasn’t going to stitch the right side as I have been dying to start Mirabilia’s Siren and the Shipwreck, but seeing a friend’s RR piece has inspired me to continue.  So I have started on the little birdie on the right side and will post when I am finished.  This piece has to be mailed out on the 22nd, so I hope to get it done.  I want to add a title, but that may have to wait until its return.

I also have to share my last 2 fabric of the months from Stephanie. The first is April Showers, of course, April’s FOTM:

This is so beautiful in person.  I just love the pinks and turquoise in this one.  The one that I received on Saturday for May’s FOTM  is Pollywog Princess:

This one is loaded with purples and greens.  Very cool.  Both fabrics are 16 ct Aida.  One of these days I am actually going to stitch on one of these beauties.  For now, I am collecting 🙂

I have also started my next pidge scarf using the bamboo yarn and I have to tell you I LOVE, LOVE knitting with that yarn!  So soft and silky.  I will post a pic as soon as I get a little more done.  Thank you for visiting today to see what I have been up to.

One Beautiful Geisha


I finished my Geisha last night.  I’m so happy with how she turned out

Geisha finished

I know I should start working on the birds and cherry blossoms.  But a mermaid has been calling to me for some time now.  So now I don’t know whether I should take a break and start Siren, or continue on with the RR…Decisions, decisions.

My Asian Round Robin


I thought it was about time to show you what I have been stitching on since finishing Emmie:

Asian Round Robin start

This is my Joan Elliott Round Robin that I am going to be participating in  starting in May.  I have wanted to stitch a Geisha for a long time and decided that my Round Robin would be Geisha’s.  I am stitching Joan Elliott’s Red Geisha and getting near finished.  I also want to add some cherry blossoms and birds before I send it out and hopefully a Title at the top. Sorry about the wrinkles.  The fabric is an extra large piece as I wasn’t sure what I would be stitching and didn’t want to be short.  So I am rolling it up and using a hoop and probably stretching it too tight as I like my stitching to be tight like a drum when I stitch.  I am stitching on a Hand Dyed Fabric by my favorite dyer, Stephanie.  It is 28 ct Jobelan Mocha Delight Here is a close up of my Red Geisha:

Sorry about the bad pictures.  There hasn’t been any sun lately in Michigan and I just couldn’t seem to get a better photo.  Hopefully when I finish her I can get a better picture.
