I've been working on my Beau Bands SAL and have managed to complete section 1. Beau Bands is a private SAL with my Yahoo group Friendly Stitchers and is designed by the very talented Abi. Here are some close up photographs of my band taken by DH.
Bands 8-15 you can see the ribbon threaded through band 9. I was a bit fussy about this band and re-threaded twice on one end until it looked neat enough for me, I've left quite a big bit on each end but these will get sewn in on making up. Bands 11 and 15 were new ones for me; Vandyke stitch and Fly stitch both of which I've never tried before but really enjoyed doing them.
Now I'm back to my Darcy photostitch as Beau Bands is up to date, still got a calendar square to finish but I'll try and do that this week when all 3 kids are in nursery/school.
