It has occurred to me that my most recent BAP/UFO, The English Band Sampler, probably isn't all that familiar to all my readers. Being that it is on scroll bars that I am reluctant to take apart constantly for photos and then reassemble, current readers are viewing only the most recent stitching. I find it very difficult to believe that, until I picked it up again last week, I hadn't stitched on this piece since the Fall of 2012. It seems only yesterday that I set it aside to do just one special project that was calling my name.
I thought it might be a good idea to delve back in my files for some old photos to piece together a sort of composite. It is hardly a complete picture since I didn't save any photos of Bands 1 and 2. Band 1 was a straightforward alphabet and Band 2 was floral band with stylized geranium motifs. If you are really curious to see Bands 1 and 2 please click here . The box below the alphabet is blank because I intend to stitch my own name and the finish date in that area ... and I clearly can't do that till I have a finish date in mind.
