This round robin started in 2004, and took place through the TWRR. I knew most of the stitchers involved in my rotation group pretty well, so I remember being really excited about this one.
It's stitched on a 32 count PTP fabric, but I'm not sure which one. I had done half of the Thyridia at the top and had basted out the pattern. I was hoping for four large bugs and four small bugs, but hey, RR.
I had also basted the center lines in the boxes to make it easier to center. I managed to not center my own box correctly, which left a big space at the top. Then I decided to go ahead and make a cute title for the round-robin to compensate.
Error? What error? ;)
Here's the completed piece:
Thyridia by me. It was a freebie that Terry had given away (later there was an over-one Thyridia print and the butterfly is in blues instead of greens!) Thyridias are really pretty and include the glass-wings you can see in the tropics. Love them!
Next is probably my next favorite bug on the piece - the Ailanthus Silkmoth stitched by Dani from Wee Beasties, Part 2:
There's a NineSpotted Ladybug by Jen
It's from the Wee Beasties, Part 3
Jeweled Scarabs from Wee Beasties Part 10, by Charlie and Nicole (father daughter, stitching duo!)
Queen of the Bumblebees by Ann:
Twenty-two spot Ladybug by Annette, from Wee Beasties Part 8!
Blue orchid bee by Charlie!
And last, but not least, one of my other favorites - the Green Orchid Bee by Sherrin!
This was one of my favorite RRs to take part in, because I love Wee Beasties so much. This was a super easy and fun RR. I have to admit that I am super happy to have the WIP all wrapped up and done after 10 years!
