Scarlet Letter Rosa and Cut Thru Sal Tea Shop update

I know in my last update I said I will work on my Blackbird Design and my ByGone Stitches Christmas Quaker and I did have full intentions to, however, somehow this ended up in my hands - Scarlet Letters, Rosa - this is all over 1 stitching on 30 count and it took me 3 days to stitch myself out of that rose! later on (much, much later on) when the whole piece is completely stitched, I will then fill in the center of that rose with yellow Bullion stitches.

- below is my progress on Bothy Threads Cut Thru - Tea Shop

I have noticed a few people doing "Round Robins" on their blogs, the latest one I've seen is a Joan Elliot one going around and it is gorgeous - can someone please explain to me, how to get involved in one of these round robins and a little bit about what exactly round robins are?
Many thanks,

I have a frogging story on my Blackbird Designs start below for those interested in the way I frog.
Happy Stitching

My Frogging Story

 Oops!  Stitched the hearts incorrectly :(
Insert needle underneath stitches
 slip scissors underneath needle
 snip snip snip
 until you are all done
 take some sticky tape make a circle, slip on fingers ( this works for cleaning lint off clothing too)
gently collect all the fluff on both the front side and back side of your piece - the back side may need some loosening of the cut stitches with your needle first before you use the tape -
 everything has been cleaned off

 restitch, sit back and admire work.
End of Story.
