A finish while 'thinking' about the last band on Frances

I had to "think" about the last band on Frances Cheyney... My gut feeling on it was that there were nuances in technique that required some thought. This also coincided with some bright,almost Spring like days so instead of just letting things sit I decided to finish the over one stitching left on the verse of Ann Bowers instead...the colors mirrored the warmer temperatures outside. I still have to decide if I want to incorporate my initials into the sampler but here is Ann Bowers by the Examplarery... The first finish of the year:

A dusting of snow outside matches the whitework of Frances ... Winter is trying to still hang on for just a bit longer. The time away from Frances was good - I was able to figure things out and returning to all the whitework on Frances while things are white outside once more.. Feels right....
