Mystery Sampler Band 3: Work in Progress

More fun this month as members shared their progress on the Mystery Sampler.  This time, Barbara Gay’s floral Virginia band.  Some replaced the linen stitch for the central basket with another stitch.  Most decided to stitch the band in reverse, so that “Spring” is on the left.  And, as we’re coming to expect, there were some personal, even idiosyncratic choices — like replacing the Halloween spider with a stinkbug!

Here are a few photos, in some cases you can see February’s bargello band as well.  Note to members:  when you aren’t able to attend a meeting, please feel free to email photos to your blogmaster at
