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,
Amanda

  4. Lovely stitching sweetie! Can't tell you much about RR as I just worked out what it's about!! :D A chart is chosen & devided into stitching sections & it goes to different person so they can each stitch their bit! It is a great idea as long as the stitchers stay dedicated & finish their section within a reasonable time x

  13. A round robin is where a group of stitchers choose a theme (eg Joan Elliott) and each person picks a fabric and some designs within that theme (I chose Flower Fairies). Each person stitches some boxes on their fabric and mails it to the next person in line. That person stitches their piece and mails it to the next person and so on. After about a year you get back your own piece of fabric completely stitched by each member of the group.
    It's best to do this as a member of an organised board like the Yuku one found here:

    as they vet the participant and will help with any issues.
    Have a look on my blog for the ones I've taken part in (under Round Robin in labels)

  14. Rosa is beautiful. I love bullion knots, just something very satisfying about doing them.
