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.

Fabric:

The foundation fabric is a hand dyed 18cnt Aida

This section of the sampler was worked February 2010.

Stitches Used:

From the top of the photo downwards the stitches used are couching using  orange cotton perle # 5 secured with yellow thread.

I added some beads before working a coral knot in a hand dyed silk thread, followed by couching. The old gold silk thread was laid down in long stitches and secured using a red orange cotton perle # 5.

The bright yellow is Palestrina stitch and the bottom stitch in the photo graph is threaded chain stitch. I worked a line of chain stitch and laced it with a reddish orange hand dyed silk thread.

Details 651 on my Freeform Embroidery Sampler

The photo below is a detail on section 49 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler.

Freeform needlework Sampler detailsection 49 of needlework samplerI have turned the photo sideways as these bands run vertically down the sampler. As a reminder here is the sampler created to celebrate the year of the Tiger.

Stitches Used:

The top two bands of textured stitches are Raised chain V1  stitch worked in hand dyed cotton perle # 5. I did not fill the bars with raised chain but pushed the chains stitches to one side. The top band has the stitches pushed towards the bottom of the photo and the band below that, has the textured chain stitches pushed toward the top of the photo. In other words the textured strips along the bands are pushed toward each other. Hope that makes sense!

The other stitches are herringbone stitch worked in a Danish cotton (that does not have a high sheen)  and Cretan stitch worked in hand dyed cotton perle # 5 and you can also see some whipped back stitches worked in contrasting coloured threads.
