I'm continuing work on a mystery band sampler. To make things more interesting, I'm stitching 2 x 2 squares instead of 2 x 6 bands. Most have been geometrical and easy to scale down.
This one was a challenge as it included motifs for all four seasons and used up every bit of the 6 inches. I had to be selective about which parts of the designs I used. I think I captured enough of each season to make my square work.
The season band was designed by my friend Pat who is starting the year with a creative endeavour with her daughter. They are posting patterns all year long using various needlework techniques. The first one is an embroidered Valentine's Day princess and is available here.
I can't wait to see what else they come up with as the year progresses.
