Post Number 965!!!

When I started this blog back in June 2007 we were still using dial up internet connection and I had no idea whether anyone would even read it!! So I'm a little surprised that I'm still here in 2016.

One day I will settle down and read the early posts especially as I don't keep a day to day diary although we tend to do a holiday journal when away on the bike.

So, here is the progress on the doodle band, I have now covered the first 4 stitches on the challenge, all familiar stitches so far.

I managed to throw out a few books yesterday, some are heading towards a friend of mine who runs dressmaking courses in case her students are interested in them, some will go to the charity shop.

Your doodle band looks terrific! I have such a hard time getting rid of books. It will need to be done, though. I have bags of books under tables, because they don't fit in the bookcases. Something has to go!

That is turning into a beautiful sampler. I can't believe how much you have done!

I'm having great fun with the doodle band, the books are slowly being weeded out. It's so difficult but now so much is available on the Internet do I need all the reference books from when I was studying embroidery etc in the 90s? Im thinking about keeping a really good couple of books on each technique. That will be quite a challenge!
