A Tiny Round Robin

I have decided to work into my stitching schedule something I have never done before, which is to take part in a round robin. I have a group of online friends that I have known for quite some time, so I feel comfortable in participating. In this one, we each get to pick a theme and I chose an Americana theme for my first round robin. The only restriction was that it could not be no more than 50 x 50. 

I have a few charts that I have wanted to stitch and the cool thing about a round robin is that a lot of the time, you wind up with one of a kind pieces. I have stitched the main portion of the design and one of the designs that will be used. I can't wait to see how this turns out! 

Here are the designs that I have chosen so far:

Designs Used: Stars and Stripes; Book #155

 and Land of the Free

Fabric Used: 18 count aida in Legacy  by Picture This Plus

Fibers Used: Au Ver À Soie  Soie d'Alger in Blanc Optique, 945, 1424, 2242 and 4122. Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Old Crow. 

Stitcher's Notes: 2016 Tiny Round Robin Piece. Both designs are now out of print. 

As of Tuesday, April 26, 2016:

Well, I had best be off. Lots to do and the day is a-wastin'! Hope everyone is having a great week!
