Finished! My neighborhood round robin...


I decided four years was too long to let this piece sit unfinished. I had to do the borders and a few additions to the inside of the piece so I started up a couple weeks ago and finished it this afternoon. I just love this piece and the friendships I made while stitching it. It's next up on my framing list and then I'll repost a photo of it when that is done.

That is gorgeous, Deborah! I look forward to seeing it framed too. I enlarged the picture and the detail on everything is well, beautiful! Love it and I'm sure you treasure it so much. How special. I've seen these neighborhoods around and hope to join in one of these days. They look like such memorable fun!

Thank you for posting that! I often wonder how a sometimes disjointed piece can come together, but your RR is just lovely. It's going to be awesome framed and hanging in a place of honor!

Your neighborhood is simply STUNNING!! I love absolutely everything about it!! It's rich with details, yet everything looks as though it belonged together from the start. Very, very nice. (By the way, thanks! You've given me some inspiration to pick up my languishing neighborhood now.)

Oh, now, if this isn´t an incentive for me to finish mine I don´t know what is! It's absolutely stunning, Deborah. Your border makes it a whole, a real neighbourhood. Thanks for posting this pic!

Oh how beautiful! I love it! Love the initials worked into the smoke from the chimney. Such thought went into stitching this entire RR piece. Very nice. What an incredible treasure!
