    I will be watching for another round robin later this year...I've never done it, but it sure looks like fun :D
    What is a DH?

    A DH is a Dear Husband. There are also DD - Dear Daughter, DS - Dear Son, etc.

    Hee Hee...it is so hard to learn all of this abbreviated talk, isn't it?

    Well, I put a panel together to be my center piece, but after finishing it, realize it's totally inappropriate! I thought a panel would be easy to just throw a bunch of borders on.

    As for my center block, I think I'm going to use the one here:

    I'll make it up and send it out.

    Here's a picture anyway of my panel. :D I think I'll finish it up and just hang it.

    I am approaching th finish line and starting to panic! I have machine stitching left on 24 leaves and machine stitching on several other pieces as well. Hope I get time this weekend to do it. If that wasn't stressful enough, we are in the middle of a kitchen renovation!

    My square went out.

    Barbsbus...It's on it's way to you! If you need to square it a bit more, go ahead. I made it quickly last night since I misplaced the first one

    Ok, as I'm sitting here trying to make a list of everything that I need to do and checking off things that I have done, it occured to me that I might have forgotten to do something with the square I sent out.

    I sent it out to Barbsbus, she was under my name.
    I included a square in there for all to sign.
    Was I to do anything else????

    I'm looking forward to getting it. Just got back from Oregon. Had to go up and run errands for my mother but was able to work on my square. I started a basket with scrappy flowers. I hope to get into the mail to Dawn on Monday. Have to take DH to a bunch of doctor appointments on Friday and will be able to get to the post office on Monday. I am going to leave room in the basket to make more flowers after I see what the borders look like and will be asking for scrapes of material from the borders if anyone has a few pieces left over. I plan to make a variety of flowers. So far I made a few with yo yo's and embrodery thread.

    Mareliba's center block arrived in the post today.


    WOW! The picture didn't do it justice! I just sat and stared at it. I'm going to have to do some thinking.

    As I was sewing busily along, my sewing machine made a loud bang noise and seized up!

    Oh, no!

    My mom's got three other sewing machines, but I'm used to working on mine. If mine has to go into the shop, I'm going to be a little "off" center myself.

    Anyhow, just thought I'd let you know I have your beautiful square and will get busy on it.

    I just took a picture of the square. I may add some more flowers before I ship it off, then again, maybe not. Got a pretty full plate this coming weekend. I plan to add flowers and greenery when I get it back with the borders.

    I am auditoning a yellow yo yo for the very center. I will look t it agin in real daylight not just a daylight lamp. Then slip stitch it sown. After that its on to the label. I can't decide what to call it but ya'll can express an opinion or give a suggestion tomorrow after I sew the yo yo on. Its a version of the rose of sharon with pastel colors for the flowers, so I am thinking of aname with spring in it, just not sure what to call it yet.

    I'm done except for the label. The yellow yo yo isn't stitched just yet. I wanted to see how it would look in the daylight before I sewed it on. I think I will go ahead and attched it. I used a combination of hand and machine applique. The stems and part of the big flower are hand and the rest is machine. It measures 35" or there abouts.

    Thanks. I'm hoping that by the time it comes back, it will almost cover the top of a bed. Then I could add a very wide border to hang down over the sides and put more vines and flowers on that. I know there is no gurantee, so I will just wait and see what everyone comes up with. But I am pleased. I was afraid I wouldn't get done in time, because it was slow going. Not all the long stems ar placed exactly so, but it was a retty good try. I had never made one block that was so big, so it was a challenge and I didn't have the urge to toss it in the garbage. That happens a lot with me! I don't actually toss them but sometimes would seriously consider it!
