Hometown Round Robin


I signed up to stitch a Hometown RR that was suppose to begin in January. I have so many projects that I put this at the bottom of my rotation. I finally started it this weekend. I am stitching the 2004 Stoney Creek - Hometown Afghan. This is the Little red schoolhouse, the first design out of fifteen. I love the colors on it.

Wow, this looks great!
I started a rotation too, because I had some projects that I stopped stitching on it! I'm also doing an afghan, but mine is with teddy bears, also from Stoney Creek!

Thanks for your good explanation on the HAED SAL about your threads parking. I started to do this to, and it is really easy to do it.

All of your stitching looks great!

I finally figured out how the blogspot.com blogs work and finally get a chance to answer the question you asked on my blog regarding the Disney houses.

Well, many many years ago in Europe, there was a cross stitch magazine, Baby Camilla, that published Disney charts and I happened to be very lucky to have my family collect them for me.

I see that you know of the Art of Disney shops in World of Disney. There are a few, someone told me that the one in Epcot carries the most cross stitch kits. I don't really know, as I go to all of them, especially the one in DTD which is awesome for Disney Lovers.

Also, Designer Stitches put out a few booklets in the UK along with some kits. Snow White is the first one that comes to mind, where there is actually a bed.

Then there was the Disney Catalog who put out decades ago in the US some kits. Those are really hard to come buy and go for crazy prices on Ebay.

If you look for Disney Cross Stitch on Ebay you can come up with really great deals sometimes. I am not a believer in the computer generated charts. The best quality comes from designers who pay for the Disney license. I believe that Disney has to approve every chart. I find that the Disney stamp of approval guarantees quality.

Your neighborhood is coming out really nicely.

Vickie,

Is this pattern still available, or was it just published in multiple magazines? I love this design.

Thanks for your help,

Stephanie
