Sampler section 50
This is a small detail from  section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler Click on the thumbnail to be taken to the post about this section of the embroidery sampler and find out how I pieced together different fabrics as a foundation cloth.

Stitches

this small detail is another example of me stitching what was happening in my life or simply marking an event. This time is is ANZAC day a national memorial day.

The stitches are a hodge podge  of canvas work stitches that I was experimenting with. I worked them in different threads of cotton, silk and rayon on 26 cnt linen

The next sample is chained cross stitch that was spaced to allow for bugle beads to be stitched between them. The fabric is hand dyed 18 cnt Aida. (Bugles next to the Anzac day piece seemed appropriate)

Today I have a detail from  section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler. If you click on the thumbnail you can read about this section of the embroidery sampler and how I pieced together different fabrics as a foundation cloth.

Stitches 

This detail is illustrates an number of canvas work stitches used on Aida. There are a mix of threads both hand dyed and commercial in different fibers. In this area I used stranded cotton floss, cotton #8 Perle and cotton #5 perle, silk and wool.  I used mostly straight stitches worked in a similar manner to Bargello and I added some eyelets and Rhodes stitch.

As I stitched the news was full of reports about the oil spill in the gulf of Mexico. So another piece of journalling appeared as I added a note about it.
