For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 44 and 45

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 44 and 45

I feel band 45 is so pedestrian that I have decided to write up today as it does not really stand on its own.

Band 44

This band is made up of  back stitch,  detached chain stitch and  fly stitch.


A hand dyed mercerised cotton which is about the same weight as perle 8.

Band 45

This band is chain stitch.


A hand dyed cotton (crochet thread)


This section of the sampler is worked on tea towel linen which is not quite an even weave.


Procion cold water dyes for cotton threads.


All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.

The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards  (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.


This section of the sampler is dated 1996 – Jan 1998
