Froth and Bubble

I'm taking a knit and crochet break.  My current WIP is a band sampler:

The words are part of a poem by Adam Lindsay Gordon:

Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.

I happened upon the French design company, Long Dog Samplers, from perusing some Tweets.  Spilly Jane of mitten pattern fame, is stitching one of their designs.  (Hey mitten people, did you know she's got a book that just came out?  I can hardly wait to get my mitts on it.)  I'm stitching it on 14-count Aida.  Linen would've been nicer, but my eyes can't do the higher count stuff any more.  Sigh.

Go visit Tammy and friends and tell Tammy not to skip that button band.
