Welcome to my Neighborhood!




One of the groups I am involved with is doing neighborhood round robins. There are 5 of us doing aida cloth.
I thought about & thought about what I wanted my neighborhood to look like. I finally decided I wanted all of our homes along a creek, stream, river, etc...
So, the first thing I did was decide that my finished piece is going to be a table runner. I then started stitching the water of the creek. I then added a few rocks, to see what it would look like. Next, I laid out where the 5 houses would go. I then added my house & now I think it is ready to go to the first stop on it's route. I may do more of the creek & rocks if I have time, but if I don't, that is ok, because people can do their houses & I can finish my work after it comes back home.

What a great idea to have your neighborhood by the water. Off to a great start.

That's a great start with your round robin, Shari. I do like that kind of aida too and using it for a few Joanne Elliotts designs.
