In the move I found some gems in the archive this is one of them. Imagine my pleasure in watching this video about a 4 meter long band sampler.
I have seen an Dutch/Australian band sampler that is similar to this one, only it was blue. It was the same sort of length and the same mix of practical stitchery and embroidery. I was told it was made by a needlwork teacher. Needless to say this tradition of creating a long thin band sampler, in part informed my own sampler.
Sorry no round up today as I have been a bit busy with the move. Back to normal tomorrow I promise!
