"Winter Band" Sampler update....

Gentle Friends, another quick weekend passes, and we arrive on a slow,wet Monday morning...... I did get some stitching in on the the band sampler and here is where it stands as of 10 pm last night.....


.... as you can see it is bee-bopping along just fine.  I did, however have to frog and restitch the first basket of fruit, it was off by a single stitch. I was really mad at having to rip it out and restitch, but that's how it is sometimes, that single stitch would have thrown the whole row of fruit off and that would have made me nuts!
_______________

That's about it for today, short and sweet.  Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Edgar.....the Winter Band Sampler is looking great! I am the same way......no matter how small the error, even off just one stitch (and probably no one would have noticed), I have to correct it. I know it is there. We woke up to heavy, heavy fog this morning. Reminded me of SF. Have a wonderful day.

It's looking great! I know just what you mean about being off like that. It drives me nuts too. Have a good week!

The sampler is looking so pretty. I know what you men about one stitch. Sometimes you can get away with it and other times not!!

Oh wow -- this is really coming together BEAUTIFULLY! You kicked that FROG to the curb - good for you! Hope he doesn't come hopping over in my direction! Really do love this sampler, Edgar. I've forgotten now which designer did this one, but I think I remember you saying you had tinkered with the design a little bit? (Maybe I'm confusing this with something else.). Looks fantastic and I look forward to your happy dance for this one.
