Past RR's that I was in

Angels with an attitude 2004

Christmas RR piece # 4>>>> 2004

Stitched on my friend Harmony's RR
also enjoyed doing this cause it was so easy and the pattern was free! Don't ask what site it was so long ago I can't remember! lol

Christmas RR piece #3>>>> 2004

I stitched this piece and really enjoyed it....was getting my practice in for more RR's that I had signed up. Still haven't gotten a smooth enough stitch...but really enjoyed this piece. I would do again but for myself next time! lol

Christmas RR piece #2 >>> 2004

This piece was stitched for Kathy's RR (my teacher)
If you look close enough you will see that my stitches are still not right...but hey I tried! lol

Christmas RR My home piece 2004

My home piece.... very 1st Christmas RR and I remember all the mess ups that I had in stitching such a small piece! lol But that is part of learning! Shoot I'm still learning.... Just want to add that I had a very good teacher! You know who you are! (Kathy F) ;-) As you can see I didn't even know how to center my work! lol

Very first RR That never returned home!

This piece forever will break my heart.... it was my first big RR I ever did and was still in the learning of my stitching & learning how to lay my RR out on my aida. My RR was EMS animal babies...Yes I even added a journal to as I like to do with most of my RR's to learn more about the ladies that stitched on my pieces. Really got into it big time...but this here almost ended my RR days for good....as you will see it didn't! And I am sooooo ever thankfull that I didn't!
