Working on Autumn Banner
I'm at the halfway point on Autumn Banner having completed the hemstitching and satin pins portions last night. The hemstitching on this banner proceeded flawlessly, in distinct contrast to my experience on the Summer Banner! I think that my brain synapses were not making a complete connection while I was counting, withdrawing, and reweaving fabric threads. I had to withdraw about fifteen threads from the upper portion of the fabric in order to finish the job correctly. I've never had so many problems hemstitching before! I have been stitching this banner in hand instead of on roller bars as most Victoria Sampler designs call for.
