Wool Crazy Round Robin…The Final Leg of the Journey

Whew!  What a busy time the last couple of days has been.  My “IN’ box has never been so full.  But now that the dust has begun to settle, I’d like to share with you a little of what’s been happening in my little corner of the world.

Our Wool Crazy Round Robin is winding down.  Each of our pincushion bases has reached the fourth and final destination and will be making the final leg of their journey home in the next little while. 

I received Karen’s base from Lori earlier this week but because of my GO! giveaway and the fact that I’m suffering from a doozie of a cold, I didn’t get to start on it until last night…

And I finished it early this morning when I couldn’t sleep because of coughing and having to blow my nose.

All four participants…Paulette, Lori, Karen and myself have each added our ‘artwork’ and now it gets returned to it’s owner, who in this case is Karen, to finish off as she sees fit.

This round robin has been so much fun.  Each of us was committed to the task at hand which made this journey such a pleasure.

I look forward to mine coming home and to finishing it for you all to see.  I know that it will be one of my most prized possessions.

Happy stitching!

Kaaren ♥

Everyone of you gals have done a fantastic job on these pincushions! Each time you share they just get better and better!

Cindy said...

This has been wonderful...to see each pincushion develop and get added embellishments.

I have truly enjoyed the journey.

anneke said...

This one is lovely too. I admired the last one you blogged about, but this one is sweet on its own. Great idea to do a Round Robin.

SueB said...

Those are just wonderful. Everyone is going to really love them.

I love your addition to Karen's pin cushion. It's been so much fun to watch everyone's progress.

I hope you're feeling much better.

I love those, each time I see one! Thank you for the tutorial. I too am hacking and coughing and blowing...yuck...hope you are better soon!

Marsha said...

I love the little scarecrow, these will be treasured. Great job!

Karen said...

The scarecrow is a perfect addition. I will need to add some decorative stitching in my squirrel area and then finish off the pincushion. I have loved every minute of this round robin.

Oh, that is so darling, Kaaren! What beautiful workmanship by the four of you. I love the fabrics and colors, too. It will be fun to see the pieces made up into pincushions. I've been wanting to make one for myself for quite a while, but I've been very busy making my bears. Maybe this winter on some snowy afternoons? :o)

Kaaren, they are all so wonderful. I have enjoyed watching them grow so much. I can just imagine how nice it will be when everyone get's their own back home! Thanks for sharing their journey with us. OH, I visited the new Prim and Wool Work shop today...so much great stuff. Great selection of wools, Valdani and Cosmo threads and Prim pattern books galore, kits too. It felt like heaven. I'm hinting for a gift certificate for Christmas. They also care a wonderful supply of great stitchery patterns. I really nice little shop!

Thanks for sharing your swap. It has been fun, hasn't it?

SueB said...

Love the pin cushions. Everyone is going to love them. Do you do the blanket stitch around the wool or is that just a whip stitch? I am just getting into the wool.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Kaaren, I am sorry to hear you are suffering from a cold...I hope you feel much better very soon. The pin cushions are so great. I know how much fun I've had watching their progress and I'm sure the four of you in the RR really had a good time with them. Hugs...
