RR comes home

Carol stitched the last space - the skeleton - on my RR and she did a wonderful job!!! Here is a snap -

Now the majority of the piece is finished - I will go back and fill in leaves, pumpkins, vines and other spooky bits - This was a super RR and I do thank everyone that stitched on my piece!!!!

Finished Edgar's RR

Whew! I am soooo happy tonight! I finally finished Edgar's RR. My DH will post it in the mail to Edgar tomorrow morning. I really hope Edgar likes what I added - there was a really huge space left for stitching on his when it arrived here, so I filled it up for him... praying he likes it.... I stitched about a million WDW Charcoal x's on it in recent weeks. I never felt comfortable to bring it with me on any of my business trips, as I had to be responsible for someone else's fabric. With being home all this weekend, I got it done.

So very sorry, Edgar, that it took so long.

Start watching Ulla!

I've sent Carol's on to Ulla's. Yes, I know I'm terribly behind, please forgive me friends, I got overburdened getting 2 Quaker's plus a Halloween RR all at once. I've got Ulla's to do, then I guess I'm through. Wahoo!

Working on Edgar's...

I remain super confused as to when we are supposed to mail again. I admit I have been confused since Shelley dropped out and I had already stitched hers - then suddenly it was like I was behind.... so please bear with me. I have Edgar's and it is on my QSnaps and evolving so nicely. It will go home to him fairly soon - I chose something very dense to stitch. I have had to take on a huge new work project, and have been in NH only 8 days in June... July looks ultra busy but better. I should be able to work steady on his and get it home to him in a snap!

Any news at all on my RR? I checked in a while ago, but I don't think whoever has it answered back...

Terry's RR is a wrap -

I finished up on Terry's RR last night - it will go in the mail in the morning on its way home.
Here are a couple of snaps...

Above is an shot of the entire piece and below is a shot of the square I did...

It is from PS Book 90 called Spring Fall - I used the recommended DMC floss - It was lots of fun to stitch and I know that Terry will be glad to have it back home!!

Edgar's RR

Here's how Edgar's entire RR is looking. I stitched a cat by Prairie Schooler in the middle of the fabric.

Sunday, May 3, 2009

Carol's RR?

Hi - I haven't seen or heard about mine in a long time... can anyone update me? Also, I have not received Edgar's yet....

Terry's RR Arrived

Just got Terry's RR in the post, Thanks Carol!!

Now to figure out what to stitch!

Ulla's RR?

Hello Ladies!

I am a little bit worried about my RR. In December was last time when I heard about it.
Where it is at the moment?

I have Edgar's RR now and I hope to get it in the mail next week.

Have a nice day!


Vonna's RR on its way

I finished Vonna's RR piece last night and it will be on it's way soon. I stitched Nevermore from Two Familiars by the Cross-Eyed Cricket. It was so much fun to stitch. I hope you like it Vonna. The color is more like the color of the fabric in the upper picture, the bottom one came out a little purply.

Finished Terry's RR

I finished up Terry's RR tonight, and I will be mailing it off to Edgar tomorrow morning. I apologize that the fabric looks so dull in my photos - so not even close to how it looks IRL... I did not use the flash since I was under lights in my finished basement... looks so gray here.

Terry's RR is starting to look a bit like a Halloween neighborhood to me, so after searching my stash a few times and scratching my head, I decided to continue that theme (and keep with the colors others have been using too) -

Happy Halloween
Shepherd's Bush - in All Through The Year, 1996

... And here is how Terry's entire RR is looking as of tonight... enjoy Edgar!

Terry, I really hope you like it! It was fun to stitch on once I finally found a chart ;-) Oh my, only one round to go!! This group blog has been sooo quiet! Hope all are well....


Thursday, April 9, 2009

Mailing today -

I am mailing out Hannah's a this morning - keep a watch Terry.

Received Terry's RR

I just now received Terry's RR from Ulla - it is so beautiful, as you can see in Ulla's post below. I am very afraid I may not have time to stitch this up before April 21 as I now have less than one month to stitch on this one :-( I will do my very best, though!

~ Carol

Terry's RR

I finished up Terry's RR few weeks ago. It's now on it's way to Carol.
The chart is from Les grilles de Maryse - Halloween 2008 freebie.

Finsihed up on Hannah's RR

I finished up the square on Hannah's RR - and really love her piece
- here is a snap -

I chose a square from "A Prairie Year II" and think it fits really well with the other squares. I wanted to include some pumpkins and really lucked out - Now it is ready for the great shifting next month.

4 Days Late!! GADS! Finished Hannah's RR!

This month has totally gotten away from me! Oh heck, this whole year has gotten away from me - and stitching/stitching blogging is such a luxury when I can fit it in (so rare, but I hope it gets better!)... I finished Hannah's sweet RR today! I hope you like it Hannah - it seems we have all pretty much decided so far to keep with using Prairie Schooler charts for you - I think it has good balance and your colors all match. Which is a good thing! I had fun with it today - and off it goes to Edgar on Monday, unless the huge storm forecasted is soooo bad that even my DH is not willing to drive to the PO. But the forecast we just heard indicated that by mid to late day we should be able to get around ;-) Watch for it Edgar :-)

I added this:

On it's way to you Donna.

A witch stitch for Vonna

I finished up the on Vonna's RR this weekend - here is a snap -

Here is her glorious piece as it stands at the moment - I worked the witch at top - the pattern is from PS and is from teh Book "Harvest Time. I have so wanted to be able to use this witch on someones RR and it fit so well on Vonna's. I used HDF silks - Kodiak Bear and Brass Tacks. I will have it in the mail to Terry in the morning a bit before the great shifting next week.

Spooky Stitching......

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Happy Birthday Ulla!

Witching for Stitching wishes Ulla a Happy Birthday!

Hope your day is special!

Donna's RR

This is my addition to Donna's House, I thought this witch looked like she should be reclining in The living room talking to her pet spider :)..She is from Plum Street Sampler The Pretties.
Hannah, could you let me know if your address has changed so that I can send this for you!

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Hannah's RR is in NH

OOops- it arrived on Thursday, and with my hectic month, I forgot to post this news until today - I am sorry!

Hanna's RR is safe and sound and my house, and I will be able to get it done quickly and off to Edgar... and Donna, I did receive the papers you sent me that go with it, so all is back in order with Hannah's pretty RR!

Sunday, January 18, 2009

Carol's RR

Finally done! I stitched a Halloween house from Bent Creek's Holiday Houses. I took the pictures before I stitched in my initials. Also, Carol, I could have stitched in another tree, but my house is about 4 1/2inches away from the edge. The tree would have taken up another 1 1/2 inches. I wanted to leave you plenty of room to stitch in your own border if you wish and for framing. I hope you like it!

It's off to you, Vonna. I think the post office is closed tomorrow, so if it is, I will mail it on Tuesday... Sorry again for the delay.

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Hannah's RR

I stitch that moon in the right corner. It's from Prairie Schooler's When Witches go riding. RR is now on it's way to Carol.

I think Hannah's RR looks great!

Terry's RR

Donna and Terry,

Just letting you know that I received Terry's RR in the mail yesterday!


Just a little note...

I haven't been around too much lately blog-wise. First, I became engaged :) Then, I was busy preparing for the holidays. Then the holidays came - along with tons of family. As soon as it all passed and life was getting back to normal - we were served with foreclosure papers. Unfortunately... or Fortunately? We are renters of a house that is being foreclosed on. We have been paying our rent on time each month, but our landlord has not been paying his mortgage.

This whole situation has caused a lot of stress. I'm really nervous about possibly being evicted at any time by the courts. Our landlord says that the foreclosure is not going to happen... but the papers show that he has not made any payments on the house since August. I checked online and he has not paid the taxes either. Unless the landlord can provide legal proof by the end of the week, we are planning to be out at the end of the month... but we have to find a new place to move to first. I am so scared to rent another house. You just never know these days... I guess.

Vonna - I have just a few more stitches... about 200... to put into Carol's RR and it will be on your way. I also already have a design picked out for Ulla's and it's not too complex, so it should be on time.

Terry - Please e-mail me before you send the next RR my way to make sure I have a good address to send you.

Please bear with me during this transition. I do not foresee getting behind on this. I will keep te group posted if I have any problems.

Finished Vonna's RR

I finished up Vonna's RR tonight - I hope you like it, Vonna!

Scaredy Cats
Waxing Moon Designs - in Black Cats' Halloween
32 ct Belfast Linen Hand Dyed by Vonna, GAST in Raven

I think I am running behind everyone else, even though I thought I was ahead! It might be because I stitched on Shelley's RR and counted it, while everyone else has counted it out?? Not sure how that works...

For me, I figured it was:
July - send mine to Edgar
Sept - send Shelley's to Edgar
Nov - send Ulla's to Edgar
Dec - send Donna's to Edgar
Feb - send Vonna's to Edgar

That MUST be wrong, as Ulla writes she has one she is sending to me now... which somehow means I am late! So, I rushed and did this one, and will have DH mail it to Edgar tomorrow!

Edgar and Donna

I received Donna's RR and I think I even have an idea already of what I want to stitch :)..

Friday, January 9, 2009

Hi Vonna!

Just letting you know that I received Edgar's RR in the mail today!
Edgar, your linen is beautiful! It makes me want some!
ps: Now I just need to decide what to stitch!

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Carol's RR

Vonna, I'm running a little late on mailing. It will be in the mail on Saturday or Monday. It took me forever to decide on a perfect little house for it!

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

This is Terry's RR ready to go!

I'll be mailing Terry's RR to Ulla tomorrow! I even myself missed the mailing date! Boohoo to me! I loved stitching this little witch! So much fun!
