Last of the 2012 Round Robin Blocks

Well, the 18 month 2012 Round Robin came to an end yesterday. Whew, I was starting to get behind and more than ready for this thing to end. LOL!

I had so much going on, that I was getting burnt out. However, now that all projects are completed, I'm going full steam ahead on a new project. Something for a friend that is going to be filled with love, as I'll be remembering all the crazy times we have had together, as I stitch.

But, that is for later. Today, I'm posting the blocks I finished for the Round Robin. Here are the final 3 blocks.

Marci's block : She made 20 blocks so that her blocks would make an underwater scene, with light blue and the top, med blue in the middle and of course, the dark blue at the bottom. Very effective.
My block was at the top, second row actually.

I purchased some turtle charms, painted and clear coated them, so that I could have baby sea turtles. LOL!  I think they came out pretty good.  These are things that are found in the higher levels of the sea.
Next is Kerri's block: Kerri was working with black, cream, gold and brown fabrics and wanted all the embellishments to be in earth tones. So, I pulled all of the beads and fibers I had in earth tones, and this is what I came up with.

Mr. Spider, here's your close-up:

And lastly, but the biggest of the three, is Pattie's block. Patty's theme was Knights in shining armor. So, I started looking for Medieval embroidery designs and items to complement the block's theme.

So, now that the hectic time in my life is over, I'm going to sit back and do some slow easy stitching. And, I'm going to enjoy ever boring moment of this time. LOL!


  1. WOW! You've been one crazy stitching lady! Love every little stitch you've made - especially love the jelly fish and the dragonfly! One of these days you and I are going to have to do a one-on-one block exchange.

  2. The block you made for me looks great on your blog - but even better in person!!!
    I'm glad you joined our CQ group and the round robin.
