This is for the Round Robin I'm in on the WWRR Yuku Board. This is Sophia's RR, she has sent it round the world once in 2008 and now it's travelling again. The theme is the great Teresa Wentzler and I was very excited to be stitching on this piece as I love TW's designs.
I chose a floral band from The English Cottage Sampler partly because there is one other
UK stitcher on
this piece and she chose from The English Garden Sampler and I thought they
made a nice pair. It is a more freeform band than some of the others but
happily fitted into the 80 squares wide allowed in this sampler. I
stitched it exactly as the pattern except for the top 4 rows which I mirrored
the bottom four for symmetry. I also changed the edge leaves to single
stitches where they would have gone over the edge.
