Band Sampler Round Robin - Sweetheart Tree

This is Karen's piece. She chose Sweetheart Tree as her theme for the band sampler. I loved stitching on this with all the pinks and green. (Excuse the poor photo. I don't know why I can't get my expensive camera to actually focus.)

I also finished Rose and Butterfly Quilt! The beading took forever and wasn't my favorite. I need to get some helpers to help me take the piece outside and try to get a decent picture.

Still going

I'm still working on the beading of Rose and Butterfly Quilt. There's a lot of it, probably more than in any piece I've stitched. Oh, and after I had beaded the middle block, the one with my initials, I realized that the designer didn't center the motif. It should have been moved to the right one or two stitches. That doesn't sound like a lot, but it looks odd once you notice it. And of course now that I've noticed it, I can't NOT see it. Argh! That will teach me to look objectively at a design before I stitch it.
