For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 147

This band of stitching is created by working a foundation row of the hybrid of chevron stitch and  herringbone stitch that I spoke about and illustrated in band 146, which i then tied with  detached chain stitch.

Thread:

The foundation row is worked in a hand dyed wool and the detached chain stitches are worked in perle thread  #8.

Fabric:

This section of my sampler is worked on cream  dress linen

Dyes:

Procion cold water dyes for the wool  thread.

Size:

All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.

The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards  (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.

Date:

I started this section of the sampler in 2004 and completed it early  2005.
