This band is another variation on basic buttonhole stitch I find the endless possibilities interesting but I realise some might not. I hope these variations are not boring!
Fabric and Thread:
The sample is worked on Aida fabric. The thread is a hand dyed cotton thread
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.
