For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 333

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 333


This detail of the sampler on section 25  is a band of vintage lace. Along the edge I have worked a version of buttonhole stitch in a metallic DMC thread that is gold with a black twist of thread spun with it. It comes on a reel and named “antique gold”. It is marked Made in Belgium and would have to be one of my all time favourite metallic thread for hand work. I then topped the arms with a green seed bead.

On the other side of the lace I worked three detached chains stitches in a fan shape like a quarter daisy. In the middle at the base I stitched a bead.


This section of the sampler was worked during 2007.




The For Love of Stitching Band Sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide. It consists of different strips of fabric which are are stitched together to form one long strip. It currently measures 24.8 yards or 22.75 metres long and I have more bands to add.
