For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 150

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 150

sampler section
This is another experiment generated out or playing with  herringbone stitch as I created it by working the top section of herringbone around in a square and repeating the stitch over the top but moving inwards. I thought of doing it when looking at band 140. If you take a look I am sure you can see the connection. I even used the same thread to work it.
sampler detail

A hand dyed wool


This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen.


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.
