CLICK HERE to go to Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog to read all about the Totally Useless SAL and find out why we're saving our orts!
As usual lately, all the orts are from Jane Turner.
The Silly Stitching Calendar (yes, there’s one for 2018) says I had 11 stitching days since last month’s TUSAL check in. Sounds like an embarrassingly small number till I remember that the December new moon was *before* Christmas and I didn’t even pick up a needle while visiting family were here for the holiday. The 2017 version of that silly calendar reports that I stitched 171 days – not as often as I’d hoped, but not too bad.
I’m working on Band 12 now – the narrow band under the Lady Band, and an inverted version of Band 10, though with the double running stitch done in dark green. Will show you progress on the band in a moment, but first I want to show you this motif.
I’ve now stitched that motif ten times, and I don’t think I followed the same path twice! Certainly that wasn’t planned, it just seemed to go a bit differently each time.
Here’s Band 12, and you can see that I have only one more of those fussy little yellow and green leaves to fill in. That’s the last one of those in the entire sampler! Think I’ll dance a little jig when it’s done.
Thanks for stopping by!
