First out of the WIP pile was the Linen band sampler from Cross N Patch. I checked the publish date on this one, I started it when it was released... in 1999. Nothing like pacing myself on the finishes.
My current progress on the Linen Band Sampler. After looking over the entire design I came to realize that the finished bell pull was over 3ft long. I like bell pulls but that would have put it in bite range of dogs and finger range of little hands so I felt it best to abbreviate the design or I'd have to hang it from the ceiling. The hardanger stitched in will be the bottom of the piece so I just have cut and fill and this one will be finished.
So, if I finish it this year it will be 18 and a legal adult. I suppose its too much to hope that it will get a job and help around the house so I can get binge watch something on Netflix. A girl can dream.
