There is no update for the Linen and Threads 2017 Mystery Band Sampler Stitch Along as I was all caught up with that last week.
There is also no update for The Never Ending Band Sampler Stitch-Along as I didn't work on that either! Yes I'm getting behind again on this but that's ok, this is the project that's allowed to slide.
here though if you want to skip ahead to the pattern you can find it here
NevaSirenda makes every year over on DeviantArt. I'd been impatiently waiting for it as I love stitching these and had made all of them last year in a fairly short space of time as they are so much fun. This one is no different, though I did finish it slightly differently. I also swapped the pink out for a red (DMC 3328) in the same value as I just really don't like pink. It's 4" wide by 3 1/4" high and the pattern itself is 31 x 35 stitches. I used 10 cm wide, 11ct white linen band with a lacy edge by Vaupel & Heilenbeck and as well as the called for DMC threads (and the one I changed) I used an off white craft thread for the cording. When submitting to DeviantArt I came to the discovery that the 2016 egg was missing! Somehow or another I'd set it aside to work on something else and forgot I'd not finished finishing it.
You probably think that's all by now but wait... there is more! Oh yes... there is. You see... having finished catching up with the 2 cross stitch SAL's and being up to date with them I no longer had a cross stitch only SAL to work on, which, when you want to cross stitch, is a bit of an issue. So I started another SAL!
The browns: 3371, 938, 898, 801, 433, 434, 435, 436, 437, 738, 739, and 712.
The Blues: 939, 823, 336, 803, 312, 322, 334, 3755, 3325, 3841, 775, and 3756.
So far I have completed the first 2 circles and the diamonds and I'm over half way with the filler of the second circle. Technically though that's not entirely correct as this SAL is working backwards! The Dutch seem to like starting at the bottom right instead of the top left for SAL's and BAP's, so what's at the top of my band is circle 49 and 48 and I'll be working down to circle 1 during the rest of the year.
That is all for this week, I hope you enjoyed the read! See you Friday with another mucha princess fob pattern or otherwise see you next week!
