I've been in a cross-stitching mood this past week, and tore through band 10 on my ongoing sampler-in-progress. Son says he really likes this one, and hubby concurs.

It looks busy but stitches up rather quickly. The colors are a smidge off in the pic as I had to play with the levels to get it to show up properly. It is also the first band past the halfway fold on the cloth! Here's all ten bands.
Sampler bands 1-10
I've picked out a floral band for #11, in (of course) shades of pink.
