CLICK HERE to go to Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog to read all about the Totally Useless SAL and discover why I’m posting pictures of thread snippets, otherwise known as orts.
My orts this time are exclusively from Jane Turner.
The Silly Stitching Calendar says I stitched only 8 days since last month’s TUSAL check in. Yikes, that’s patethic! Work has been especially hectic for the last month or two (and not likely to let up for at least another month) and fairly often lately I get home too tired to remember my own name - not a good condition for stitching.
But he *good* news is that I’ve finished Band 12 (yay!). I know I’ve mentioned before that Jane’s wider, more complicated bands are bracketed by pairs of narrow bands that are essentially mirror images, and I had decided to show you that when this band was finished. But while stitching it, I noticed that the colors on the satin stitched circle flowers in Band 12 were reversed from those in Band 10. So that would mean that instead of being mirrored, it’s spun around 180 degrees, right? Nope.
Newly-finished Band 12 (I like the darker green outlining better...)
Weird, huh? Now I’m curious about the other paired bands.
And I’ve begun Band 13 - the first, narrow Montenegrin stitch band! Next time I hope to show you a bit of progress there, and some detailed pictures of the stitch.
Thanks for stopping by!
