For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 360

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 360


This band of stitching is made up of two lines of curved chain stitch. In the dips of the curve I have worked three  detached chain stitches. Each cluster of three stitches had a seed bead stitched at the base. I then added a  Farago rose which is worked in silk ribbon



Both threads are hand dyed cotton perle #8 thread.  The silk ribbon was also dyed by me.

Procion dyes for the cotton thread and the silk ribbon


This section of the sampler was worked in November 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.
