I have always liked this little detail on section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler
It is very simple as it consists of two rows of buttonhole stitch shaped as a scallop and worked back to back. I used a hand dyed silk thread that has approximately the same thickness as #5 perle cotton.
The ribbon roses along the middle are worked in silk ribbon. They are called fargo roses and you can find a tutorial on how to work them here They work up quickly and a bead in the middle finishes them off.
This section of the sampler was worked between March and May 2010.
This area is a section in my Love of Stitching Band Sampler which is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and currently measures 96 feet 5 inches (2,938.78 centimetres), or 32.138 yards which is 29.3878 meters. It is still growing…

As I wasn’t one of your followers at that time in 2009, I didn’t know to comment on your Farago flower origin. As I went to your tutorial to see if it really was MY Fargo Flower from Judith Montanos class, I saw that DeCrow explained it accurately in her post of 5/12/2009. However, it was Fargo, ND and Judith also calls it Joyce Flower. How fun for me to hear how Judith explains it.
HI Joyce I love the fact that this story is confirmed by you – the internet is just wonderful that way.
Love this! You are so creative with your stitches!
This is gorgeous! Love the stitches, colors, and different textures. I have never tried farago roses, yours are beautiful. Will have to try them. Thanks as always.
Just shows how the easier stitches can look so effective with the right thread and a companion!
