Loara Standish - Week 3

I was able to complete bands 8-10 this week. 

I have to admit that band is 11 is kicking me in the nether regions!  It has been quite the challenge!
But, I have started my trek on this sampler, and by hook or by crook, I will finish it.  Even if the only band I finish this week is band 11.

This sampler is so much prettier in reality.  The pictures of it show up as very muted, but although not bright like some of the samplers I have stitched, I would qualify this one as being elegant.

I pulled out all of the 1990's charts to double check I have everything.  The only thing needed was a piece of raw linen, of course in a count I didn't have.  But it has been ordered, and I'm not in a big hurry to get it.

I love being able to go into my stash, and pulling a project to stitch, and I have everything I need to just start stitching. 

Nothing much else going on here.  I did finally find a chair cover for my chair.  It's quilted and just ties on.  Plus it wasn't all that expensive.  Thank to Wayfair, yet again.  I just wanted something to protect the chair, since it's sort of a pale grey micro suede.    Prior to this, I just had towel on it, and it was always shifting around.  

Well, that's all for this week!  Happy stitching!


  1. Sorry that band is giving you fits, Pam; it is very striking though. Lovely chair cover! Have a wonderful week.

    1. It's ok, I have done a lot of unstitching and restitching x 3. Got to be positive and if the only band I finish this week is 11, we'll that sort of makes up for the firsts several weeks that I was whopping out several bands a week.

  2. Hi Pam, I love the cover on your chair, i could do with something for my sofa. You have taken on quite a challenging design it is looking good.
