I've been bitten by the RR bug again!

Somehow over the past year or so I've gotten myself involved in 4 Round Robins. I've known about RRs for years but was never very interested until I got involved in the Stitcher's Lane RR at the beginning of 2005. That one is now finishing up, as is the open-themed RR I joined next. I'm also involved in a Band Sampler RR and even moderating a Mirabilia RR. After I started the Mirabilia RR I said to myself that I was going to cool it with the RRs for awhile - mostly because I was scared of overcommitting myself. HA! That lasted all of a few months.

I got this great idea for doing a Round Robin of Foldable Books like the ones the Designing Ladies did for 2006. I posted about it on The Worldwide Round Robins board only to discover that a few others had some good ideas for RRs too! So now I could potentially be joining three more RRs! The other two besides the foldable books are RRs for Fancy Letters (monogram type) and Just Nan. Autumn did a JN theme for the open-themed RR and it looked so nice I really wished I had a JN RR. So I HAVE to be in that one. At least all my stitching is done for the Stitchers Lane RR and the open-themed RR. So if we can stagger the start dates a bit maybe I won't have more than 3 or 4 on the go at once. Even if I do though, I'm excited about them and I've discovered I have a lot of fun picking out what to stitch for others and it lets me excersice a bit of creativity which I really like. I'm not talented enough to draw or design my own stuff, but I can usually manipulate the real designer's stuff into a unique and fun project. Round Robins seem to give me the opportunity to do that. :)

RR's can be a lot of fun. Sometimes stitching designs you would never have picked, and enjoying them!
