This band of stitching on Section 32 of the For Love of Stitching Band Sampler is based on a foundation of 2 rows of herringbone. The top and bottom rows are tied and then laced with a dark metallic thread. In the middle of the 2 rows I have added lines of seed beads .
Hand dyed cotton perle #5 and metallic yarn
26 cnt linen
This section of the sampler was worked during April and May of 2008.
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.
