It's been another gloomy, rainy Saturday, so I plopped myself in the wing chair this morning, vowing to stay there until I finished this band.
And I did, other than necessary breaks for food and drink and shifting loads of laundry from one machine to the other.
That cross-hatch filling pattern, the one that looks like netting, wasn't difficult to stitch but it was time-consuming. I don't remember seeing anything like it on any other sampler I'm familiar with, so I think I'll spend some time with my sampler books looking for something similar on another sampler.
After the dividing band, there is a large pansy band that has a variation on the cross hatching as its filling stitch. I love pansy bands, but I think I need to spend some time on finishing this week-end.
Oh, and it might be a good idea to battle the dust bunnies before we're overrun. The problem is that needlework is ever so much more fun.
