For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 127

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 127

This band of stitching is created by working a line of  herringbone stitch which is tied with a row of  zig-zag chain stitch


DMC perle thread  #5, and #8.


This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen


The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and each section is 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.
