Lions and WIPs and ORTs, Oh my!

I have one lonely picture of what I've stitched since my last WIPocalypse post. However, I did that post about two weeks ago, so....

I completed my portion of Sophia's Band Sampler RR. You may be wondering why it took me so long to do. Don't let the appearance fool you. It may look fairly straightforward, but WOW, that thing was difficult!!! For every whole cross stitch, there were another two or three quarter stitches. And, if that weren't enough, everything, and I mean everything, was backstitched. In four separate colors, no less! Holy smokes!


My bands

The whole piece
 I sure am glad I'm finished!

I know. Tardy doesn't begin to describe my TUSAL entry. I just plum forgot with everything that has been going on. Fortunately, Bubba seemed willing to help with my picture today.






I just had to share this picture of Honeybee and Squash playing with a rope, today. They were so cute. :)

You have some gorgeous cats! Glad the sampler is over seeing as it was so much work. I have always wanted to do a sampler but am yet to find one that sais "stitch me".

Looking closely at you RR piece I can see why it was so difficult, but it is well worth it. It is gorgeous.

OMG I was exhausted just reading the description of the stitches but then I saw the finished work and man I think it was worth it. It's so beautiful. You should be proud of your achievement. You're kitties are too cute.

Your band sampler stitch is awesome! It looks very intricate and a lot of work.
