What I did on my Summer Vacation.....or

Band Sampler Update

Last week my mother-in-law was in town visiting. I am very lucky and get along (and even like) my in-laws so her visit was not a bad thing! She is also very easy to entertain. We went out to eat a few times, drove over to Evergreen (it was cooler) and walked around. We went to downtown Littleton and walked around. But mostly we all hung out together at the house. She reading, hubby on the computer or watcing TV or doing little things around the house (like laundry :) ), and I mostly stitched!!  Truely a good time was had by all despite the record high temps (house has air conditioning). Miss Maddie slept as usual.

So with all that stiching time I made pretty good progress on my band sampler and thought I'd share.

 Below is a close-up of the left side completed

 Below is a close up of the rest of the piece still being worked on.

This section is the first part of the second part of the three part series (got that?) Go here to see the entire top part (first third of the sampler).  The last third should be in the Fall issue of Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly and I hope to be caught up by then---could need another vacation!
