welcome to the new blogger - pull up a chair and sit a spell

Well, here we are. I hope no needles or skeins of floss were lost during the move from the old to the new Blogger platforms. I forgot to tell you all to buckle up and hold on tight. ;)

I believe that most of us have our NRR for this round (sorry, Rachael, it should arrive this week) and that we are aware of the March 15th deadline to keep us on schedule. If you are having problems with the deadline, please discuss it with the person to whom you post - life does go on in spite of our stitchy plans, and I believe we are all pretty flexible and understanding of that fact.

We should all give a big round of applause to Carol, who has begun not ONE new neighborhood round robin, but THREE. Though she hastened to say she was only actually doing the stitching in one. Somewhere out there in blogland is a new blog for this massive undertaking - hopefully once the needles start flying, she'll share the address so we can watch a whole lot of new neighborhoods take shape.

I would like to say a great big thank you to everyone for keeping up with the NRR so far - some of us have had some serious shake-ups since this project started, and most of us have experienced some unexpected and unpleasant 'bumps of life'. These neighborhoods are not just patterns copied down with needle and floss, but bits of our lives - the happy and the sad - and when they come home to us and hang proudly in our houses, they will be a constant reminder of the friends we love and the trials we've weathered together.

Well said Barb, about our NRR being bits of our lives for each of us to share, I have enjoyed doing this with you all, after weeks of chatting to An about doing the NRR, I'm really glad we did and I have enjoyed getting to know each of you all in a small way.
Hugs Su
