    Nexxus- Really like the border you added to Alikat's center. It adds a great dimension to it.

    Thank you but can't take credit for it all. My mother and I designed it on Thanksgiving. Honestly I didn't think it would work but my mother was right (as usual). It also gives it some uniqueness too.

    Hey, everyone. Sorry I have been MIA. it has been a rough two months for me. Ended up with a total of three surgeries after my car accident. Just got out last time on Monday. That being said, I am finished with my round and am asking mom to help me mail it tomorrow. I am committed to this round robin, and barring any unforseen problems, should not require any further procedures. ( so my dr. Says!) Here is the picture of the completed round....

    Alikat - I sent you a PM with her address - you mail to Nexxus631

    I am so sorry that you have had so much trouble since your accident. Prayers that you continue to heal completely under your Dr's care.

    Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. Your health comes first.

    Thank you, Paula. It did not take much time to finish. I had it planned and cut before my last sx. I am moving slowly, but can ready tell a difference. Less pain this time....Did Melinda tell you I pulled it from a book that she also has....coincidence. I love what you helped her design for mine. It is very striking around my center!

    Ok I guess I will forgive you since you are a fellow quilter. You are especially a quilter who I desire to be just as good as.

    Ha Ha - Melinda's mom! I could never take Lestrong's place but would love to have her as my mom too.
    What book do you two have that I should be looking at? You both create such unique rounds.

    Hi there Dragonfly. Some times it wish I had more kids (hahahahahah). I've adopted enough of the kids friends. Most of my work is just in my head. If I see something I like I try to come up with a way to put it together. Takes lots of paper a calculations but it works. God blessed me with an artistic ability to do this and I run with it. I love doing it.

    I know what you mean about "adopted" kids through you kids Lestrong. I have a funny about one of those kids.
    On my wedding day - just after we entered the reception one of my "adopted" kids called out "Hey Moms" and when I turned around I was very surprised to see him (He had traveled from Michigan to Virginia as a surprise) and squeeled Rah Rah! When I went to give him a hug he picked me up and swirled me around.
    You should have seen the look on my DH face when he looked back to see a very large man swinging his new bride around like little kids!
    You see, my DH had never met him and had no idea what was going on - what a surprise and joy it was for me to have him there. I have know him since he and my son were very little. Once the introductions were made all was well and we laugh about it still - poor new hubby thought some man was trying to steal his bride.

    Melinda - I think you meant this comment for the 2013-2014 RR thread - if you are talking about the dragonfly center one.

    Oh goodness - where is my mind? Alikat does ship to you - LOL

    Glad you like the top - Alikat did a great job on her round - even added a new color, Orange. My friend is going to love it.

    I hope you ladies are enjoying Christmas with those you care about. DH and I had a quiet day to ourselves so I spend a good deal of time in my sewing room. Below is what I created today....my "Acorn" round for Lestrong's fall center.

    Paula...that is nice. I am recovering from strep throat. Missed my family gathering on Sunday....boohoo!!! Getting on the tail end of the infection now, so enjoyed watching my kiddos open and enjoy their presents this morning. I love the acorns you added! Merry Christmas everyone.

    Thanks Alikat. You poor thing - You did not need strep with all the other healing you have to do.
    I hope you feel better soon
