I have not made  much progress on my UFOS  to write. to see others progress visit Pintangle.

We were on vacation to Chennai, India for two weeks. We visited Bangalore and some temples around our village with our family. Our family Deity [ AngallaParameswari], Avanivanallur, Alankudi [ Guru], SriVancheeyam [ Yamadharma], Ramaswamy[ Kumbakonam], Pattiswaram[ Durga], Suryanar Koil[ Sun], Vaitheeswaran Koil- were the temples . All the temples are centuries old, makes us feel and both proud to be a part of these and humble that how insignificant we are. This trip was more of a pilgrimage to offer thanks to God for looking after us during my hubby’s emergency surgeries. We also had Navarathri Festival during which we refrain from stitching. So lots of excuses for stitchfree vacation.
SharonB had asked about the length of my TAST samplers. The sampler are of 4 inches width. They are still individual pieces, which I am hoping to assemble together one day.
TAST sampler details– I started stitching TAST sampler in 2009, when the TAST challenge was restarted on stitchinfingers. I worked 16 of the challenge stitches. The total length of these 2009 year sampler is 14. 4 feet.
In 2010, I joined the TAST challenge on Pintangle and worked 28 of the challenge stitches. the length of 2010 sampler is 23. 5 feet.
In 2012, joined the TAST challenge on Pintangle and completed all the stitches. The length of 2012 sampler is over 40 feet.
In 2013 , joined the TAST challenge on Pintangle and completed all the stitches. The length of 2013 samplers is 32. 5 feet.
This year too, I started working the stitches as band samplers which is 15 feet in length. And after 22 weeks moved on to working the challenge stitches on some designs, these design samplers are of varying length and width. I have got the sampler fever again and plan to work the stitches which need catching up as samplers. The total length of all these samplers cross 125 feet at present.

Thank you, Sharon.
