Frances Cheyney (1664) - December- progress report

This sampler is proving to be a lot of fun to stitch!
The band below was really fun to work out even though it was time consuming.  I am finding it hard to keep to the time allotted and stop working on this sampler now that the bands ahead are even more intriguing but I know I have to get back to my other stitching.
Here is the sampler showing the past weekend's progress:
Frances Cheyney - buttonhole stitch in all it's beauty

Thanks so much for all your kind comments and 'likes' on Facebook as well as here on my blog.  It would be great to see them here so I could thank you all personally.
A number of you apparently have this chart/kit in your stash but have not started it yet - all I can say is that this sampler has been an enjoyable one for me to stitch so far - it demands you to be patient and not get too bored with the repetitious nature of some areas; it requires a methodical approach and accurate attention to tension of stitches, has a variety of techniques.
