Round Robin Part Deux

I finished this tonight. I too was worried that I would run out of time, but I got on a roll and knocked it out. My husband is complaining that I keep putting his projects on the back burner- I believe it is time I taught him how to cross stitch. I can't wait to see you on the 7th (wish Joy could be here too- I really want to see the HAED in progress). Miss and Love you! ~mother


  1. The dog is really hard to see, even in good light. It might be worth backstitching around them- just a thought. I was thinking that once it was finished we could make a final decision. And you were right, Maiden, stitching straight on an angled piece is difficult.

  2. I think you are right about the backstitch, it would be good to see what the other animals look like, and I'm glad I wasn't the only one that found this stitching difficult!

    Alright, I guess I will have to tear myself away from my HAED to work on the owls! I only have half an owl done, but I am driven by some unearthly desire to see the first full page of Pretty done so that I can post.

    You should teach your husband to stitch and then we can call him a Manbroider!

    I wish I could come out too, but I am sending fabric in my stead! Miss you, The Maiden

  3. I love it...I was telling the maiden the really cool thing about our round robin is that we have all chosen projects that have varying thread types: mine is in silk, the maiden in anchor (which I think the mother will love, I did) and then isn't the mothers in crescents? Very exciting. I am looking forward to the houses...The jury is out on backstitching, I just wonder if we need another thread color instead?

  4. The animals look very subtile in the photo of the finished piece....
