Celtic Band Sampler...Still Plugging Along...

OK, this took me a long time to stitch - and I still haven't finished the band! But at least all the knotwork is finally stitched, I have to do only the center flower of the last medallion type area, and then finish the acorns... still sounds like a lot to do!! I swear I will catch up with this SAL someday!! LOL!

I got some sad news from the stitching world today, and I thought I would pass it along. I followed up with Laurel of Laurel's Stitchery about the parchment jobelan I had ordered from her. She had to get it in stock for me. It is on its way, but she also told me that her husband died suddenly on June 16th. She sounded OK in her emails, so I am sure shock is still in control here. If you are one of her customers, I thought you would appreciate knowing this sweet lady is going through a hard time. She needs our support right now.
I think all of that magazine bidding I did on ebay ended today, and I got this one :-) Yep, because of the Flower Fairy.... maybe I have enough Flower Fairy charts now :-) LOL! I also got the Pecking Order kit, which I want to give as a gift to someone dear to me... But other than those old ebay bids coming around to win, I am proud to say I had a mentally stable day - a day without any compulsion to buy stitching goods! Yay me! This is big!

Stitched on today: Story Time at work - stitching up really quickly!, and Celtic Band Sampler

Edited to add: Happy Birthday to my Dad... he passed away suddenly on 12/17/95, but today would have been his 69th birthday... I miss him so much!! On a much different note... I got in the Anchor flosses today for Kingfisher, along with the four cards of Petite Treasure Braid for Celtic Winter - going to get the fabric ordered Friday so I will be ready to go for that SAL at the end of the summer :-)

Hi Carol,

Carol, I found that band one of the longest so far I think it took me about 3 rounds to get thru it!

I worked on mine tonight as well and got one more band finished.

The banner is coming along great. keep up the great work.
Sorry to hear about Laurel's husband. I do not know her but it must be a sad time for her right now.

I also do not know Laurel but that is horrible news. She is in my thoughts.

Your band sampler is really coming along, and you'll have Storytime finished in no time and be back to deciding what to bring to work to stitch :)

Hi Carol!!!
Thank you for sharing all your works. I love your blog and when I read it I always think that I'm not stitching as I'd like... It's so hot in Florence... kisses
