Mini band sampler


No update pic today, I just didn't stitch at all yesterday. I spent way too much time browsing on Ebay, and for someone on the stash wagon that was not a good idea. Guess what? I fell off. And well and truly fell off. Sorry, to those I was on it with. It's just I was really, really fed up. I got some charts, but they're all smallish, and some fabric.
Anyway, this small sampler I stitched recently, I think it was last month, and today I finally made a tassel and attached it to a hanger. The design is by Liberty Street Designs, and I found this small cut of fabric band amongst my stash, which matched perfectly. However, when I'd finished it I realised I'd stitched on the wrong side of the band. With all those eyelets, and beads on it, I thought best not to frog it. I'm still happy with it, at least it will be unique. The hanger I bought for another bellpull I finished earlier this year, but when it arrived it just looked far too small, but seemed perfect for this.
And to Anonymous - thanks for leaving a message on my blog, and asking me to contact you, unfortunately as you're anonymous I can't do it, I have no idea who you are, and don't think I belong MSCSG, but would love to know why my blog was on there.

Gorgeous bell pull, I'd never know you stitched on the wrong side of the banding if you hadn't said anything.

That is gorgeous Chris! I love it. Can I buy the chart off you come December please?

I know how fed-up you were so I can't say I blame you for falling off the wagon. I was very close last week. I think we can be proud of ourselves for getting this far:) {{{{hugs}}}}
