This band of stitching is created by lacing a line of herringbone stitch with rayon ribbon floss
Perle thread #5, and rayon ribbon floss
This section of my sampler is worked on dress linen of an uneven weave
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.
