Perle thread #8 for the herringbone and a hand dyed mercerised cotton for the detached chain stitch.
This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen
Procion cold water dyes for the cotton thread
The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and each section is stitched together in one long band to create a band sampler sampler which 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.
