This band of stitching is created by working two lines of herringbone stitch. The second row (yellow) is worked on top of the first
The green is perle thread #8 and the yellow is a hand dyed wool which is about the same weight as Appletons.
This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen
Procion cold water dyes for wool thread.
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.
I started this sampler in 2004 and completed it early 2005.
