Seems like this sampler generated a lot of interest. So far I have established all the parameters and started stitching some of the bands. Here is the final band that is composed of predominantly satin stitches and detached buttonhole. The smaller three pronged detached buttonhole areas would lend themselves well to bullion stitches or combination of detached buttonhole on the side arms and bullion in the middle but I have decided not to change too much on this sampler.
from now on is devote approximately 20 hours to 'other needlework' per
month... so I will post periodically as I finish bands.
So here is a picture of the band I just completed.
