Loara Standish - Week 4

I really didn't think I would be able to finish another 3 bands of  Loara within a week.  But miraculously I somehow managed.  I am showing a picture of bands 11-13, and also a better shot of the most recent completed bands, and how they look with the bands above them.

On Sunday, I started on band 14 which is a particularly wide band.  On Monday, I spent the whole day ripping out everything I stitched, due to being off.  UGG!  But, I'm back on track now.

Things are very quiet here.  We had some trick or treaters last night.  It was great to see the little ones. A show that our subdivision is renewing with new families, probably due to the recent completion of a brand new high school in the district our subdivision is situated in.  For many years, even as my kids were completing the local school systems, I could see the bus stop, situated in front of our home, having less kids each year.  Now the primary bus stop is filling up again.

Last week, while my husband was in Tampa, I ventured into his office and hung up all his diplomas and certificates.  They had been leaning up against a wall since he started working out of the house.  Granted, they hanging job wasn't perfect, if he had done it.  He gets out a tape measurement, and a level, and does all sorts of math to hang even a single picture.  I am just terrible at the math part, and end up hanging them by "eye"   Which also, means I have to have the spackle handy, for the mistake holes!  

I am happy to add, that I now have everything I need to start stitching my 1990 charts!
My next sampler after Loara will be Ann Rayner Sampler with a copyright date of 1990.  No more sharing of other 1990 charts on the horizon!

Well, that's it for this week.  Happy Stitching!


  1. Good for you on getting bands 11-13 finished, Pam! I hope the rest of 14 is smooth sailing for you. Enjoy your week!

  2. It is beatiful, so far! I'm sure it will be amazing!
