ROUND ROBIN


This is the start of my Round Robin and Jaclyn has received it, so I can show my bit now.. It is all going to be tea time things and there are 6 of us in this one. I am going to make it into a cushion when it is all done. the finishing date is September 2010. I am thrilled to be doing this as I haven't done anything like it before.  I wonder what each member of the group will want stitched? I am using some aida as I  thought it would be stronger than linen.  All the my charts are out of The Cross Stitcher magazine.
If it looks a bit lop sided its because I have cropped the photo (in GIMP !!) because it has my name and address stitched on the side, just incase, as Clare suggested it might get lost in the post!

You might notice I have started a new blog to chart my progress using GIMP which is a photo imaging program, my efforts shown here are paultry compared to others but my latest ones are much better and I am quite proud that this last one took less than 30 minutes.



Also my book arrived today on How to Knit Lacy shawls by Evelyn A Clark, so as soon as I have stitched my bit on my two sals I shall be starting to knit a fine lacy shawl or scarf!!


And I have nearly finished my fifth pair of socks, so I am well pleased!

Boy, you are so busy!

Love the teapot! What a cool idea!

That GIMP looks interesting. I've seen people make those photo collages and wondered how it was done. Gonna check it out!

Oh I can't wait now until it's my turn to stitch on this- it's going to be great fun. I haven't heard of Gimp but it looks a nifty tool.

Lovely start on your RR Chris. I've only taken part in three RR's, but they are great fun to do, hope you enjoy this one.

A lovely RR piece. Am looking forward to seeing all the RR pics. Well done on getting to grips with Gimp (something else I need to have a go at!). A lovely montage. Hope you'll post some pics of the shawl or scarf when you get going. Well done on the sock finish too. :0)
