The piece of linen was very long but I did not like to cut it, so I left it as it was.
It is quite colourful and I changed things a little by working a border first. Many of the stitches in the border are canvas stitches and many are worked in wool thread.
There are quite a few beads and even some sequins.
As you can see during that period I had a birthday and our Prime Minister made an apology to the indigenous Australians.
Over the next few weeks, I hope readers will enjoy a closer look at this section of my band sampler.
26 cnt linen
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.
