Continuing on - Margret Gatis Day 9 & 10

Somehow lately I find it is easier to pick up a sampler in the evening so I am continuing on with Margret Gatis despite other projects I was originally planning on working on this week. 

Here are some pictures of my progress from last Sunday and last night.  I decided to continue mapping out the entire sampler and work out the satin stitch areas first.

There were some issues with the charted area of the whitework bands and the actual space it was to fit into so I had to add to bands.  I also decided to add pulled thread techniques (four-sided stitch) instead of the satin stitches charted and added Smyrna crosses to another area.  I am still thinking about one of the areas in this last band of the sampler.
