Houses Round 3
This was really interesting and fun to do. I did find out that the Maiden's stitches are totally different in texture and tension so it was really hard to match into the area in which she worked..hers are poofy! The last two round robins didn't do that because the Owl's stand alone, and the Mermaid was done as the round after the Mother (which apparently stitches pretty much on the same tension as I do)..very interesting. I do love this piece. Unfortunately the colors are so much more vivid (you will see), and there is no guide for any backstitching on the original pattern. I went ahead and used the "Bramble Bush" for the backstitching. I also followed the lines of the stitches..looks kind of strange on the cats butt. We can redo this if we think we should. I really REALLY like this piece.
