For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 126

This band of stitching is created by working a line of  herringbone stitch and tying it with  detached chain stitch.


A hand dyed cotton


This section of my sampler is worked on cream  dress linen


Procion cold water dyes for 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 section of the sampler in 2004 and completed it early 2005.
