For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 137

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 137

This band of stitching was created by working two lines of herringbone stitch overlapping each other and tying them at the top and base crosses with a small straight stitch


A hand dyed mercerised cotton about the same weight and thickness as perle #5


This section of my sampler is worked on cream  dress linen


Procion cold water dyes for the cotton 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 as I stitch more


I started this section of the sampler in 2004 and completed it early  2005.
