This is the first band in the section and is basic buttonhole stitch
Fabric and Thread:
The sample is worked on Aida. I only used one thread on this section of the sampler. It is a cotton thread which was hand dyed by me.
Procion cold water dyes are used to dye the threads
The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and all sections are 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.
This section of the sampler was finished in December 2005.

I am pleased you like it. I did not realise people could not see the photos and I was clicking around yesterday and changed some settings – glad it improved things rather than breaking them!
Hi Sharon! I just wanted to drop by and tell you how much I’m enjoying your site. I read through Google Reader, and I’m not sure if you changed something or they did, but now I can see your pictures in the Reader! Thought you might be interested to know – it is a VAST improvement. 🙂 Thanks for all the inspiration!
