I seem to have fallen into the pattern of concentrating on a BAP with brief forays into smalls when I need a break from the larger project. So the current BAP is The English Band Sampler from Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly issues 2012 Spring, Summer and Fall. I am working on Band 4 right now from the Summer issue. There are two more bands in the Fall issue. Each floral motif is very very detailed: definitely not quick stitches, by any means. When you consider that it took me two days to get the back stitching, specialty stitching and long stitching done on the blue star shaped flower ... admittedly only 3-4 hours of stitching ... I am not optimistic about finishing this band this month.
