Freeform Hand Embroidery Sampler detail 686 and 687

Sampler section 50Today I have a detail from  section 50 on my Love of Stitching Band Sampler

The thumbnail will lead you to an article  about this section of my   Love of Stitching Band Sampler which is 15 cm (6 inches) wide and currently measures 96 feet 5 inches  29.3878 meters long. It is still growing….

This is a very small area of hand dyed 25 cnt linen that I  worked some half diamond eye stitches on then edged them in back stitch and straight stitch. The thread is hand dyed cotton perle #8. The triangles are a strange plastic non shine bead like thing. I have no idea where I got them or what they are for but they seamed to fit!

This detail is also worked on hand painted linen. It is made up of chain stitch, twisted chain stitch and I think the last ring Palestrina. I can not tell and my notes do not tell me either!
