SS Band Sampler

I have finished stitching the last sampler of the Stitching Sister Counted Thread Band Sampler Round Robin.

This sampler is for Margaret, who has stitched the up/down tulip design at the top. For my band at the bottom, I tried to keep the flow of pink & green that seemed to be happening. I played with designs on graph paper first then decided the colour. The stitching started with two rows of 4 sided stitch, with 6 threads removed between the rows. I then needleweaved the remaining threads to keep them strong. Above the 4 sided stitch I worked groups of radiating straight stitches, while below is a row of large eyelets which have been outlined in back stitch. The top row was then mirrored below the eyelets.

I feel a little sad now that this is all over. I love stitching counted thread work of all types and this RR has been an excuse to venture out with colour & stitch combinations.

Jenny its looking really great. I hesitate to say it under the circumstances, but I think I should have it before it goes back overseas. I'm quite inspired by this one, I can see a real "direction" happening, and perhaps stitching on this one will spur me on with the others I still have? What do you think?

It is fascinating to see the different styles. The round robin certainly injects an individuality in to the piece.
