August 13, 2013--The sampler is now framed. It's big--33" long by 17.25" wide. Love it.
PS When cutting out the horizontal threads, I held my breath to keep from shaking the scissors and clipping the wrong thread. Success.

|Band 11 With Beads|
July 3, 2013--Band 18 is now complete. Almost done with this sampler---Band 7 needs my attention. The original design by Catherine Jordan is called Contemporary Drawn Thread, calling for threads to be cut and wrapped together in what I consider to be a helter-skelter manner. Will be doing further research on what do to with this.
Band 18--Liberty ANG designed by Ro Pace
June 24, 2013--Band 17, designed by Mary K. Campbell, is done. I used beads from my stash rather than what was suggested. One more band to stitch on the bottom then I must concentrate on what I'll do with Band 7.
Band 17--Beaded Pins designed by Mary K. Campbell
