This band of stitching is created by working three lines of herringbone stitch, each on top of the other.
Three different types of cotton, each hand dyed by me and about the same weight and thickness as perle #8.
This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen
Procion cold water dyes for the 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.
I started this sampler in 2004 and completed it early 2005.
