Embroidery band sampler detail 722 is an example of Woven Cross stitch. This sample is worked in hand dyed wool which is actually a fine knitting yarn.
The next band on my sampler, band 723 is a filling stitch created by working rows of Chevron stitches back to back before tieing the foot bars of each row, with a single straight stitch. I also worked single straight stitches in the space of the chevron pattern which I then tied with a cross stitch.
The next ample is worked in a hand dyed silk thread. It is a type of Eyelet stitch called Algerian overlapping border.
Sample 725 also features this stitch worked in blocks as a fill. I used a commercial dyed variegated cotton perle #8 thread.
The last sample is band 726 which as you see was stitched on the anniversary of the day the two halves of the Sydney Harbour Bridge was joined.
