And Still More Sampling
I finished Band 5 on December 31. Moving on, I started the cross-stitched outline of the pattern in the next band in DMC 3011, dark olive green. Band 6 is a very deep and densely stitched band featuring a cross-stitched outline filled in with satin stitches and specialty stitches. I find this so much more relaxing than the fussy Band 5 with all its quarter and three quarter stitches and intricate back stitching. I am going to make the most of this band while it lasts because the next one is very similar to Band 5: two side by side panels of the same motifs flipped upside down in a sort of reverse mirror image.
Anywat, I need to do a bit more stitching on Band 6 in order to produce an interesting photo. Maybe in a day or two, I'll have something worth showing.
