The Crazy Gathering Group have been busy little beaders. The Round Robin was started in November of 2004. Over the past year there has been some beautiful creations made. The blocks are now starting to make their way back home to their owners and I know you will just love to see what the ladies have done. We had 13 ladies participating. Each lady made a Block or a pieced item, and then we sent each block around in a big circle so each person worked on each block and in the end the owner of each blocks receives it back after being stitched by everyone in the Round Robin. It has been a great learning experience for everyone involved.
