In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Much to my amazement

I finished this band in only two nights.

What with all the reversibility and changing the type and direction of the stitches, I figured it would take a week. It didn't.

Believe me, I'm not feeling at all over-confident about working the rest of the sampler. As usual with 17th century samplers, the bands get larger and more complicated as you near the end. I fully expect that there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth before much longer.
