May WIPocalyse

It's WIPocalyse time again...I never seem to really work on a WIP for these...maybe next month. This month I started three new round robins. I posted a pic of the first earlier, but here are the next two.
This first one is being done with a group of stitchers from the Friendly Stitchers yahoo group.  I have chosen Yesteryear from Little House Needleworks  for my piece. It is stitched on a mushroom evenweave with DMC threads. I have done the top border and heading. I think I  will have to  stitch one block and the bottom border when it returns. I am also going to add everyone's initials to the bottom.

The second piece is being stitched with friends from the Every Stitch Counts group. This is the first robin for most of the stitchers, so we are stitching on aida for this one. I have chosen Papillon Creations' Simple Little Quaker for my piece. It is stitched on a capuccino country French aida with DMC variations and coordinating threads. Each stitcher will do one of the larger bits and I will add everyone's initials when I get it back. I have stitched one of the two center motifs.

It was too cloudy here last night to see the full moon, but I hope to get a glimpse tonight. It is supposed to be spectacular this month.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We had a fun time with our grandson again, I got a little bit of stitching done and tonight we are off for some Mexican food. I think I will spend some quiet time reading later too.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
