  1. I see a good start to an owl by using the 2 outer sections in the photo separately. I think I've said (a long time ago) that I am in awe of your band sampler. What a great way to learn stitches, play with variations in threads, and in your case, commemorate some events happening in the world at the time. I know you wrote that you started it as a teaching aid, but sometimes I wonder who has learned more – your students or you.
