Freeform Hand Embroidery Sampler detail 688

Sampler section 50This is another close detail from  section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler 

which is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and  96 feet 5 inches  or   29.3878 meters long. It is still growing… I am not an obsessive or anything…

This is an example of pattern darning and I have used different threads. The top few rows is the pattern worked in  hand dyed crochet cotton, followed by stranded cotton floss, then some metallic thread, hand dyed silk, hand dyed wool and then the lower darker band is cotton.
