This is another variation on basic buttonhole stitch. As you can see it is simply buttonhole worked in a wave.
Fabric and Thread:
The sample is worked on Aida fabric using a hand dyed cotton thread which is about the same weight and thickness as perle 8
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.

That is beautiful! Not only do I like the wave factor, but the variegated thread makes it pop. I will have to try this on a cq piece soon. Thank you so much Sharon for so much inspiration!!
