The long-promised photos
This blog was getting too wordy, so here are the photos I've been promising you for weeks.
The finishes are Lizzie Kate's Beware of the Cat and Dragon Dreams Lost Dragon Sampler. I LOVED every minute of that Dragon Dreams Sampler. I really do like band samplers. I think I may try to work on one of my fancier charts of a band sampler, because they are such a joy. The Lizzie Kate was maybe not such a fun stitch, but it's pretty.
My WIP is the Mouse from Hollie Designs. I like this chart, but I am not sure that the colors are the best. I wonder if, back in 1983, when they designed the chart, they had the color selection we have, because it's not an issue of the dyelots changing--the cover photos is about the same shading. But it's fun. The branches are giving me a fit, but I'll get through it.
