Ellenor Wycks - Band 4




During the last week life has got in the way of stitching and Band 4 drifted a little but I am pleased to say that it is now complete. 


 This sampler is a delight and such an interesting one to stitch. Band four seemed more intricate than the preceeding bands although on looking at the sampler overall it does not appear so. 

I am back to stitching EK now - it was hard to put Ellenor down.

Life certainly has a way of doing that....Ellenor is such a beautiful sampler and your stitching is exquisite as always. You have really made this sampler come alive for me so I know I will be stitching her at some point in my future :)

Love the close-up photo's, your camera takes wonderful pictures. You are getting quite a nice collection of band samplers stitched up. Your home is going to look spectacular.
