Ok, June ends in just a few hours and I'm trying to figure out what happened to April.
Does it seem to anyone else that 2018 is rushing past at breakneck speed?
Just six months left . . .
Meanwhile, I finally fixed all the errors I made on the last chamber of the fifteenth band of Frances Burwell and finished the stitching. I also added the missing stitches of Band 16. I have reached the halfway point in terms of number of bands on the sampler:
My original plan was to bounce to another project when I got this band complete, but I'm having so much fun back in the 17th century I believe I will stay here for a bit. There are two big honkin' bands to work, plus a few smaller ones, and I'll be ready to start the pictorial section at the bottom of the sampler. And it has a house that looks remarkably like the architecture of Bacon's Castle in Virginia, which is the reason this sampler appealed to me in the first place.
If all goes well, I could potentially have two big samplers finished in 2018.
If time slows down a bit and doesn't continue to zoom as it has.
