A Little Stichin'

Gentle Friends, over the weekend I finished up the "Russian Bird" Band on Sojourner... 
 here's a snap...


... now on to the "Mexican" band....  I've had to change the colour for this band from "Fern Fond"  to "Herb Garden" - the skein of silk I have in FF is way too light I think, so I tried HG.  I've already done the Montenegrin stitched bar ( loved this stitch BTW) below the Birds in HG after frogging out about 3 inches of FF....  HG is a colour I really like anyway!!

Gotta love that bird band--they are funky/quirky and I love it! Also, that pizza looks great. I want a slice, and I actually dislike pepperoni!

The sampler looks gorgeous! I agree too -- no cook dinners are the best!
