Through the 11th, I’ve been able to stitch eight times (wheee!). Didn’t even think of the camera till the last three evenings, which is typical of me. If you’ve looked at more than one of my Harry Homeowner posts, you know I usually think about “before” shots when we’re in the middle of a project. Sigh.
Since the start of November, I’ve been working on Band 8 - the first of the really wide (uh, tall?) bands of Jane Turner. I am totally loving it! I’m delighted how the Holbein stitch seems to fly along compared to the various filling stitches Jane used.
Oh, and yes - for any of you who have worked on Jane or have her in your stash, I cheated on those two sprigs beside the dark green twisted/intertwined part in the center. Rather than making one dark green and the other medium green, you can see I stitched them both in the dark green. Ah, I do love symmetry. It was already an adaptation rather than a reproduction as I've changed a couple of the colors slightly so that the "peach" would be visible against the fabric.

You can see it’s raised in the straight-on shot.
Edge-on, you can really see the height.
