Detail 670 and 671 on my Freeform Hand Embroidery Sampler

Sampler section 50
Today I have two details from  section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler

Stitches Used

This detail is a battlement type pattern stitched in back stitch using  hand dyed #8 cotton perle worked row upon row. Then between the rows I added lines of tied herringbone. The herringbone is worked in wool and the ties are cotton. The fabric is hand dyed linen.

The next little detail is journal like in nature as it records that my daughter Eve came home as she was working at the national Folk Festival. The little charm was tied to chocolate rabbit she gave me.

The fabric aida and the back stitched lettering is worked in cotton thread.
