My Band Sampler 97 – Details 715 to 719 September 4th, 2008

threaded arrowhead and back stitch

Take it further July coloursThe first line is Threaded Arrowhead Stitch.

The second line is also Threaded Arrowhead Stitch but using a smaller stitch which doesn’t look as different from the first line as I thought it would…this is the last line of Arrowhead..

The Third Line is the Start of Back Stitch…and no I haven’t flipped the image by mistake, it just appealed to my sense of humour to stitch back stitch backwards.

The 4th line is Whipped Back Stitch…the first have of the line shows the bigger back stitches that I did, the second half of the line shows how whipping the back stitch with the same colour makes a more solid line.

The 5th line is back stitch whipped with a contrasting thread, I have also done a couple of different lengths of backstitch along the line to show how the shorter stitches alter the look of the whipped backstitch.

The 4th line is also the finish of my Take it Further July colours (I am stitching a foot on my sampler with each of the take it further colours)

and the 5th row is also the start of my Take it Further August coloursSharon has made the thread selection of threads for the August colours very easy for me, on the last wed of July she gave me some of the threads that she had recently bought, the next week I found out that she had used those threads for the August colours.

    I hadn’t realised that you were using the TIF colours Annie.
    Love the reversed back stitch words.

    I have been enjoying watching your sampler grow. You made me smile today, with the backwards ‘back stitch’.
