This is three bands of running stitch which have been laced with a thread then the lacing was laced with chenille.
The running stitches were working in a hand dyed perle thread #8. The first run of lacing is a hand dyed mercerised cotton (crochet thread), and the last is a hand dyed chenille
This section of my sampler is worked on 26 count linen which has been hand painted with procion cold water dyes.
Procion cold water dyes were used for both thread and foundation fabric
All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.
