My Band Sampler 09

Top row, long narrow herringbone stitches make a nice base for a sweet row of flowers, the flower stems are stem stitch and the leaves are detached chain stitches…Both greens are 2 strands of silk floss

Middle row is a basic herringbone stitch with Detached chain stitches over each cross…Both threads are Rayon Thread…Tip when working with Rayon Thread, damp the thread and let it dry or holding thread at each end pass the thread through the steam of a kettle, it takes the kinks out and makes the thread managable.

Bottom row is a basic herringbone stitch with needle weaving in the V shapes…The second colour was introduced when I realized after doing the first 5 that I only had enough thread left to do 5 more, I did get 6 so I did them at the other end of the row with the 6th one in the middle so the pattern is still balanced…Both Threads are cotton pearl size 5.
