Donna's RR finished!

I finished my square on Donna's RR. Donna i hope you like it. Its an adapted version of LHN's "The Counting House."and here's what Donna's RR looks like overall.For anyone that loves LHN you should visit our Heartfelt Friends Round Robin blog. I am way ahead on the RR (the deadline isn't until October) but i just wanted to work on this until it was finished to get it off my mind as i have a few deadlines before the end of the year (as you can see in my sidebar) and i would like to do some Christmasy Stitching for myself and my family at some point too.

I received this gorgeous biscornu for Hazel on saturday morning as i was a winner in her blog competition! Isn't it gorgeous? This is my first ever biscornu! Hazel, i love it! Your stitching and finishing is just beautiful. Thank-you so much!In other stitching news i received my exchange partners name for the Specific Designers Exchange on the SBEBB and im excited about that! I have already decided what to stitch. This will be my first exchange on this board. Speaking of exchanges, remember the nightmare i was having with my Fair and Square exchange (if not, read about it here)? Well, the squares arrived back to me (they were marked return to sender) and i have now posted them off again to my partner's new address. Im so glad they were returned to me! Im going to do round 3 but i hope it will be less stressful this time round :)

This RR is looking fabulous already! The biscornu you received is lovely too. I had no idea the mailing of your Fair Squares went so horribly wrong. Sorry about that, but what a relief that at least they were sent back to you!

I love it! I'm so happy with how your block looks. I love sheep. I'm waiting on some floss to come in the mail to finish Edgar's RR.
Biscornu is cool. Haven't made one of them yet.

Mmmmm I hope the bear in Donna's square dosn't make is way over to yours to have your sheep for a snack. :)

You did a great job! The sheep reminds me on the one in the Wallace and Grommet cartoons.

Your square looks wonderful. The counting house is one of my favorite designs, the little sheep are so cute. The RR using the LHN patterns was such a fun idea, I'm enjoying seeing what everyone is doing.
