    Ladies,

    The 15th is upon us and I hope everyone is ready. My center will go in the mail tomorrow. I am truly excited about this round robin...we have two from Australia and one from Scotland. I will attempt to attach a picture of my center. Let me hear from you!

    I'm very bad, I still haven't mailed my starting round to Jacquie. But here it is, all ready to go in the post tomorrow morning, as soon as the PO opens.
    I thought I'd see how we all went with a boy one this time. We seem to have lots of girlie rounds and rows, and very few boyish ones, so I thought as usual outside that darn cube. :thumbup:
    Hope you all have fun with it!!

    very nice linda, is that a 24 in rectangle? and have you put on borders? i'm new to round robins, row robins are much easier lol!!
    mine is in the process of being made. i had completely forgotten about this!! esp' as we now have 'wee Phoebe to keep us busy and i'm experiencing over kill in the wedding plan area!!
    don't worry though, my centre will be in the post this week!!

    It does not have to be square as long as it does not measure any larger than 24 X 24. The Round Robins are really easy...you just add the next round according to the size on the original email...I hope you print it and post it where you can remember where it is...I put my on corkboard right next to my design wall...it helps me remember.

    Linda...lovely block and it will be fun to work on.

    Um silly me. Rechecked the list. Posted to Kay not Jacqui. No it's not square this time and yes I did add a small frame just to start him off. He has started his long march to USA. Did get the label in but forgot his little travel diary. Will be writing that today and mailing it to Kay as well.

    Ps. I think it's 15" X 18" but I don't really remember.
    I thought it might look good on a grandsons bed when finished.

    The block is a Carol Doak and it's called Celebration Wreath. I downloaded it free from her web site. She has lots of free patterns. This is my first pp. Didn't know if I would like pp-ing ....but I do. It's lot's of fun. I didn't make the whole wreath but plan to with another fab. It is gorgeous as a full wreath. Check out her web site and look at it.

    OK..here's mine. I did this 3 years ago when it was way beyond my skill level. After 3 solid years on this board I felt ready for it! I re-did a lot of it to make it square and even though it is far from what I could do today, I still love the fabrics and the pattern. So...on this one ladies throw away perfection and have fun!

    Wow, more pics, very nice ladies, looking forward to seeing them in person.
    So now we are just awaiting pics of Carsey,Jacquie's and Maybeonedays centres, and
    I already know that Kathleen forgot to take a pic before she mailed, so I will post a pic of her centre next week when it makes it to Victoria.

    Carsey, yours looks fabulous as well. Kay yours is much larger than I thought as well from your photo. All 5 of the centres are great actually and so it seems I am the missing one here :roll: oh dear.
    My DD just told lamented over my not taking a photo of it.
    Lindyline has said she will take one for me.

    Looking forward to this one ladies and also getting to know you all over the time we will be sewing together.

    Cheers

    All the center's are great! Funny thing Lindy...I got the journal for your center Saturday, but have not gotten the center as yet. Have a couple of ideas about the next border, but have to see if I can get the fabric to work the way it is in my head...LOL...that is sometimes scary!!!

    Well I have Maybe1days centre and it is beautiful. Such a pretty soft centre. I will post a pic when I get home. Phone and I are dyslexic together. Need my computer to help out.
    I really need to think about this round. Hmmm mm mm. ............

    And Jacquie cute little angel. Looking forward to working in her eventually.
