WIP: Jana P. Kerr's Mystery Sampler

A couple weeks ago, GF - Sue D [without blog] showed me her mystery sampler, from NeedleArts Magazine [EGA publication]. She is stitching parts of this in the evenings. Her banding looks GREAT : )

I couldn't even remember where I had left off!!! Pulled it out of the closet yesterday & added a few more stitches.



I finished up lesson 10 of 15: small eyelets [alpha letters S-Z], Standish stitch, Montenegrin, & Long-armed cross stitch bands.

Started lesson 11 of 15: blackwork border [strapwork in blue fiber]. Perhaps I'll get the queen stitch [strawberry motif] stitched later today

Very pretty, your different bands look great. I'm looking forward to seeing your queen stitches. Those are so lovely looking, however, they are the one stitch (in addition to french knots) that I can never seem to get to look right. Using them for a strawberry motif sounds cute.
