Band Sampler Round Robin -- Rainbow

Jo's round robin theme is the rainbow, as you can tell. I stitched the bottom portion in indigo. I took bands from Jeannette Douglas' Mini Topiary Sampler 4 and used Dinky Dyes Fantasy Blues as my variegated floss. I stitched this twice -- the first time I didn't like how the outer edges lined up. I guess I should have planned better.

I hope everyone is having a good holiday season. My mom is retiring after this month, and I'm counting the days. Still no progress on getting the house sold. I think we've had one person look at the house this month. We're hoping things pick up in the spring, but it's not encouraging.

Oh the band sampler is looking so pretty. I love what you added. Sorry to hear the house sale is not looking promising right now. Here's hoping it picks up after the holidays!!

Oh Wow! It's looking so good.

I love that the blue and indigo are so different, it as my main concern when I chose the rainbow.

Only one more stitcher then it comes home to mama!

The rainbow theme is an interesting idea for a RR. I like it!
