This was my 1940's lady which was a design in the magazine World of Cross Stitching.
There were five picture in all and each showed a lady wearing the fashion of a decade starting from the 1940s. For my round robin, I chose 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s.
I then posted this off to RoseAnn in Indiapolis in July. She stitched the next one and posted to Connie in Ohio, who stitched the 1960s one and sent it on to Lisa in Southend on Sea.
In November Lisa sent back my completed design. At time of writing this, it is away at the framers and when it returns, I shall post a picture.
This Santa belongs to RoseAnn who lives in Indiapolis. She was the only one who did four separate designs. Each of the Santas was a different colour and I was the last one to stitch.
I found this round robin the most complicated and challenging of all and admit to having a bit of a panic in the middle because I was afraid of getting it wrong. I misread the chart for one and the boots should have been grey. I had to contact RoseAnn to tell her I had muddied her boots!
In the end, this one turned out to be my favourite. It just looked so beautiful when completed and again the photograph doesn't do it justice. RoseAnn said I could keep the chart and I may very well do another one for myself next Christmas.
