Freeform needlework Sampler detailThe photo above is a detail on section 49 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler.

section 49 of needlework samplerI have turned the photo on its side as this band runs vertically down the sampler and sits to the left just below the tiger.

Stitches Used:

With the exception of the cross stitch used to define the tiger, this area of Vandyke stitch  is perhaps the largest block of stitches in this section of the sampler. I worked it in hand dyed rayon thread.

With this stitch we have covered all the areas on this section of the sampler and next week I will introduce section 50.

Fabric:

The foundation fabric is a hand dyed 18cnt Aida

Date:

This section of the sampler was worked February 2010.

Stitches Used:

All of these stitches are beginner stitches. I love returning again and again to the simple stitches.  From the top of the photo downwards, first  I worked a line of  chevron stitch using a cotton floss thread .

Next is line of buttonhole worked in a cotton perle # 5 thread.

I then added a line of beads before working a line of couching,  securing stranded cotton floss with a yellow thread that was also stranded cotton floss..

The last line of stitches is also couching using straight stitches in  yellow cotton perle # 5 to secure the foundation thread of orange cotton perle.

Details 653 on my Freeform Embroidery Sampler

Freeform needlework Sampler detailThe photo below is a detail on section 49 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler.

section 49 of needlework samplerI have turned the photo on its side as these bands run vertically down the sampler. These details are on the bottom right hand side of the sampler created to celebrate the year of the Tiger.

Stitches Used:

From the top of the photo downwards, first  I worked a line of chain stitch and laced it with a reddish orange hand dyed silk thread.

Next is running stitch whipped with the same hand dyed silk thread.

I then added a line of beads before working a fine line of herringbone in a cotton thread.

Once again I used the old gold silk thread and laid it down in long stitches and then secured using a red orange cotton perle # 5. Technically this is a form of couching.

The last line of stitches is also couching using crossed stitches  worked in  yellow cotton perle # 5 to secure the foundation thread.

Work in Progress Wednesday Block 42 started

Block 42 startedThis is the last block in this quilt. I am so looking forward to doing something else once these blocks are done! I am sure everyone feels like this at the end of a large project such as quilt. Anyway here it the block and hopefully next week I will be able share what I have stitched on it.  It is the same colour scheme as my last block so should be fun to work.
