Spot RR

Hi, everybody, first of all, somebody out there must be doing a rain dance on my behalf; it has rained a couple of times in the last few days. We're still dry, but I haven't had to water in two days!!! I have beautiful hibiscus in bloom! I also have gorgeous roses - planted inside my pool fence so I can protect them from the marauding deer herd!
So, I have been spending my time stitching. This is a pic of my stitching on Angi's Spot RR over on the Worldwide Round Robins board. Angi stitched a gorgeous border from Indigo Rose, but gave us free rein to select spots. I picked some from the Drawn Threads ABC sampler (for what that series of charts will end up costing, I need to stitch them several times!)

My DS (also known as the apprentice photographer ) took these photos for me. He had trouble capturing the entire piece, but maybe you can get the idea. My DH is actually quite good at photography; my attitude is point and shoot, and hope for the best!

Well, that is all for today. I am stitching on Just Nan's peacock cipher from several years ago - I am roughly half done. I am also getting ready to start my next Neighborhood RR piece.

Happy stitching! Margaret

Fantasy Neighborhood RR

Hi! I finished my stitching on Dani's Fantasy Neighborhood RR. It was a really fun stitch! Plus, now I'll be sure to get this one posted off to Vonna on time!
I haven't been stitching very much lately. I have been spending all my time gardening and watering the trees, shrubs and perennials I planted this spring. Please do a rain dance for me!!!!!
Happy stitching! Margaret
