My Band sampler 63 – Detail 631 April 24th, 2008

The Olympic Torch Relay was run in Canberra this morning, I thought about going to watch it but it is was early in the morning and the weathers getting cold and I decided instead to watch it on TV while I stitched the torch and my peaceful protest onto my sampler…I have to thank Sharon for the idea for the design.

The bottom of the torch is rows of stem stitch done with a fine silk thread…for the top of the torch I did rows of stem stitch done with a silver metalic thread and then I used the red silk thread to weave rough circle shapes over the metalis thread and outlined it with backstitch…the flame is stem stitch and straight stitches.

I made the protest sign an applique so that I could paint the words with a brush as they would be on a real protest sign…the stick for the sign is a piece of satin ribbon.
