My Teapots round robin is home!

My Teapots Stitchin Fingers Round Robin is finished, and arrived home today! Two of the six ladies are very fast stitchers, and they finished their piece on my RR in record time. Because mine took the form of an oblong table runner instead of a square or circular panel, I had to take two photos - one of each end, to show you how it looks. The colour is really 'off' in these photos - I took them in the kitchen under fluro. light and it looks much darker than the actual colour. It is 14ct cream toned Aida, and to finish off, I plan to put a border of fabric around it. I need to ask a few friends for their advice on which fabric to use, as I have several gorgeous fabrics to choose from! Left side:

That is just delightful. So glad everyone kept up with their commitments. It doesn't always happen with RR's.
