This band of stitching two lines of Creten stitch worked in a pattern. Beads are stitched alon gthe middle
The band is worked in hand dyed cotton perle #5
Linda, 27cnt evenweave fabric produced by Zweigart
The sampler is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and all the 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 I have another 12 sections to add. Since I constantly have it to hand picking the latest section up when in the mood it will get longer. I will stop when I get bored with playing with it!
This section of the sampler was worked in November 2007.

This is one of those that I think – Oohhh, that is just so beautiful – I am a bit of a sucker for blue.
Those beads are so cute! They look like they were made for this band.
