Yesterday and so far this morning I've been in a crochet and cross-stitch mood. Since I still can't post pics of the crochet (they are gifts and recipients are allegedly subscribed here) I thought I'd post a cross-stitch pic for Gloria. She's said in chat that my cross-stitches look "proper" - that is, all the crosses go the same direction. I've even had a lady say the same locally, as she held it in her hands. I'll say again - for the record - my crosses are not "proper" because to do so would use more floss than the haphazard method I do.
Elizabethan band sampler WIP - improper stitches proof
Along with showing my multi-directional stitching ... this also serves as an update on the band sampler. Since I now have my own copy of the book and no longer need to worry about potential library fines, I haven't been working on it as diligently. Plus, this band is a bit more intricate than most of the others! I'm almost past the halfway fold on this band though, and repetition helps speed things up.
At some point, I should post a pic that includes the lefthand side of this sampler ... where all the mistakes are. Not today though.
