Jenny's band ready for England

Last night I was able to finish my band on Jenny's sampler. Here is the sea shell to go with the seahorses. The sea horse chart came with the running stitch motif on an angle, but I only wanted one stright motif at the end of the band so I charted it into an upright position which seems to finish things off nicely.

And here is how the bands look together.

I've had a request to bring this to my EGA chapter meeting on the 19th, so I'll send it off to Mandy after that. I've never seen anyone bring in hardanger work like Jenny's so I'm sure they'll be very impressed.

I feel a bit of lunchbag let down now. After the feast of two samplers, I don't know when to expect the next one!
