Latest Round Robins worked on

This first one is a sewing themed Choose your own theme of "Carole's" Had fun doing this one. I used a piece of a tape measure, some ric rac, a piece of elastic, some seam tape, piping, covered buttons, regular buttons, snaps, ribbons, beads, yo yo flowers, silk ribbon flowers, acrylic flowers, sewing themed charms, and a little cross stitch of a embroidery hoop and work. Plus a few basic sewing stitches like the blanket stitch and a basting stitch, and a couple of embroidery stitches.
This is Flora's kitty kitty block. Such a great colorful block. Had no trouble picking out colors for it. I add the little prissy white kitty with the pink collar among the acrylic flowers at the bottom right. Above that I used her great red grosgrain ribbon with the white stitching, couched it down and added bead flowers and beads and a few paw prints. To the left I did a featherstitch in a pretty variegated thread got in a thread buy from Susan N. and added some purple beads to highlight the stitching. This kitty kitty has been a great Round Robin. Such great stitching and ideas from all the ladies. Got to work on two of Rebecca's kitty kitty blocks, this being the second one. I add the hidden kitty at the bottom among a bunch of acrylic flowers and a little butterfly he is watching. Above that I used a set of kitty buttons that spell out meow. Drilled holes with them to sew them on. Don't they look like they are looking up at the great big kitty in awe?! To the left on that gorgeous piece of fabric in soft aqua with butterflies and silver highlights I added some beads to all the butterflies spots.

Love the Geronimo block, the kitty blocks and your doll house. And the doll house for the doll house is incredible! When will you make a doll house for the doll house for the doll house? You could go on forever, till you had to use a microscope to build with!
Those stairs are beautiful. What a lot of work you've done; you should be very proud of yourself!

A Little About Me

Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
