Loara Standish and Frances Cheyney

I decided to continue on with Loara Standish by the Examplarery and continue working on Frances Cheyney this weekend. 
The subtelty of design and color in this band of Loara are a welcome change from the very repetitive stitches I have to do on Frances.  Blackwork/Holbein stitches are always enjoyable and stitching things reversibly is always intriguing.

Close up on the last section of Frances - adding my own interpretation after lots of 'thinking':

Nupur this sampler is fantastic - as you say, the subtleties of the shading are beautiful. The Frances Cheyney detail looks amazing.
Blessings, and thank you for sharing your wonderful needlework.

The Loara Standish is beautiful. I'm so glad you rescued this from the UFO doldrums and are sharing it with us.
