Finished Wendy's Neighborhood Round Robin
Today I finished up my square on Wendy's Neighborhood Round Robin, and I really am quite pleased with how it turned out. I used Cherry Hill by Country Cottage Needleworks, and I modified it a bit to accommodate the round robin. I removed the lettering on the hills and I did not stitch the big cluster of cherries in the upper right corner. And, well, as you know, I only stitched 1/4 of the border and feel this really flows with the rest of her sampler now. Then I added a pair of birds from Houses of Hawk Run Hollow to fill the block. I chose them because Wendy and I are both stitching on HOHRH at the moment and thought she would enjoy that little touch :-) Here is how her stunning round robin looks now. As I wrote to her in the RR blog, if she does not care much for this when it comes home, she can send it on to me - I am sure I have space on a wall for this beauty! Wouldn't we all??
OK, off to stitch on a gift - an important birthday is fast approaching!
