This is the Bountiful Beginnings Traditional Round Robin. It was for Newbies, but you would never know it from their lovely work! This round robin started in 2010 and finished up in 2011, and the original participants were Ely, Marilynne, Misty, Lisa A, and Gina. However, a couple of the ladies had to drop out, and Kerry also served as a stitching Angel for both of them.
The Asian-themed traditional Round Robin (#1) began and ended in 2010. The ladies had a lot of fun with this and were very creative in their embellishments, as you will see. The participants were: Rita, Meg, Diane M, Nicki Lee, and Darlene.
