The Project that went around the world!

Presenting the first of my finishes in the Stitching Diva's Round Robin.

This cross stitch project just returned home a few weeks ago, after a long trip around the world! It started out in my family room in February of 2007, where I stitched the center square (#5) and the one directly below it (#8) as well as the border. Then it went to Miami, FL, where Denise Grenfell stitched square #7. From there it went to Fort Nelson, BC, where Suzanne Baker stitched square #9 in April. In May, the piece found its way to Whitehorse, Yukon, where Viv Bales stitched block #6. By July, the project had traveled to Mooroolbark, Victoria, in Australia, where Coral Cummingham stitched block #1. Coral then sent the piece to Essex, England, where Irene Forrest stitched square #4 before sending it on. Next was Sara Sowers who lived in Hope Mills, NC at the time, and she stitched block #2. The only block left was #3, which was stitched by Teresa Dorn in Foristell, MO, and then it came back home to me.

I think I will make a throw pillow out of this piece. It is a piece that I will treasure always, as it was stitched by good friends.
