For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 50

I feel I made some sort of marker point as this is the 50th band described on my band sampler!

That said, the 50th row is a simple row of  buttonhole  stitch!

Thread:

A hand dyed  cotton (crochet thread)  which is about the same weight and thickness as perle 5.

Fabric:

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

Dyes:

Procion cold water dyes for cotton thread

Size:

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 growing as it is still being added to.

Date:

This section of the sampler is dated 1996 – Jan 1998
