I had hoped that, by the time I was able to post again, I would have this band completed.
Not so much.
It takes a long, long time to cross stitch over one. A long, long time.
I had thought I would have enough time before the workshop to have all five bands filled in. I still have about three weeks, so I could potentially do that. If I give up sleeping. And all social activities. And what little housekeeping I do to avoid a visit from the health department. And quit my job, which would then mean I couldn't afford to go to the workshop in the first place.
Once again, I have to accept that I don't stitch nearly as fast as I think I can--or maybe I'm just slowing down with my increasing age and decrepitude.
