Round Robin #20

Look at what came back my way again..... Yep... the Motif project. I couldn't control myself when it came to stitching this one again. The previous stitcher did the same. And guess what?! I sent it back to the previous stitcher again. I wonder if I'll get it back next month. That would be funny.

In this round, I stitched the Butterfly, the Tree the the Right, 2 Hearts, 1 Small Star.

Round Robin #18

Here is a Round Robin that I participated in February. I have never done any of its kind before. One solid color for the whole project. I dreaded it in the beginning, but soon after stitching, it became fun. The beauty in just one color is amazing.

Round Robin #17

Here is the Round Robin #17 that participated in January. I stitched the angel girl. The previous swapper stitched the Noel Santa... the original stitcher of this project. This one was a huge piece of aida cloth, which I did not fully show in the photo.
