Gentle Friends I wound up the stitching on the "Christmas Band Sampler" last night and so have my first finish of the New Year!! Here's a snaperoo.....
"Christmas Band Sampler" by Heartstring Samplery
36ct Sand, over dyed by me with black tea.
I used the recommended floss (GAST and WDW)
12/6 - 1/16/2014
This was a super piece to work on and I almost couldn't put it down to work on anything else. The changes I made were - from top to bottom - Band 7, the do dads at the end of the row I replaced with up and down lines to go with the top and bottom, at Band 11, I replaced the do dads at the end of the row with a double heart motif of my own construction - and at the bottom I left off the numbers, I think they detract from the body of the sampler.
I love Beth's pieces and have even pulled from the "stash heap" my next start. The chart, floss and linen are all coming from stash how cool is that!! I'll show the actual start and talk about that on Monday.
Now, on to the Gift-a-Way Drawing..... since the chart for "Christmas Band Sampler" was a gift to me I think it only appropriate that I gift it on to another stitcher......
... so, if you would like to have this slightly used copy ( I stitch from copies not originals) just leave a little comment on This Post Only and next Thursday evening I'll have the Hag Claw draw a name and announce the winner on Friday, 1/24. Anyone, anywhere can enter, if you can get snail mail you can enter...... just make sure I can contact you through your entry Comment. There you go easy peasy!!
That about wraps up the week here by the Bay, thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!!
