It is time to introduce section 13 of the For love of stitching band sampler.
As you can see it is only small. I was going to work a sampler of chain stitches but I broke the routine because I had to work samples for a course I was writing. Also I think after working so many buttonhole varieties I was a little tired of the restriction of working one stitch variety band after band. So I just stopped with a little area.
One thing about this type of sampler is that I can just cut it off where I want to!
The sampler was worked in January 2006 on hand dyed linen.
In case a search engine has landed you here this post is part of series documenting a hand embroidered band sampler, which now measures over 44 feet long and is still growing as I still stitch it.
