I was able to finish my drawn thread bands on my sampler before leaving last week for Oregon but just haven't had the time to take photo's and put them on my blog. I am so glad to have these bands finished, they have been the most challenging thing I have done on my sampler thus far. Maybe because I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and messed them up. Well regardless of all my repairs I made to fix my stupid mistakes I think they turned out quite well. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do next, I have a few ideas but nothing definite.
The drawn thread bands are all done with Petite Silk Lame` Braid SP33 by Rainbow Gallery (I love this thread!) and the other two bands done in green are a varigated silk that I have no idea what it is, I bought it discounted because it was missing it's tag.
The first drawn thread band is the Diamond Hemstitch.
The first green band is the Montenegrin Stitch.
The second drawn thread band is done with half Diamond Eyelets and Coral Knots.
The second green band is done with Scotch Stitch and alternating Scotch Stitch.
The third and final drawn band (the one I messed up) is done with Hemstitch and Herringbone Stitch.
Please excuse my terrible photography and my un-pressed linen, I am a work in progress when it comes to photos and I hate to press linen.
Our Sampler Club meets this coming Saturday so maybe I will get some feedback from the other ladies on where to go from here. Can't wait to see what we will be learning! Hopefully I will get to write a post about it this weekend. My daughter is having 4 of her friends over for a birthday sleep over, eek! Should be an interesting weekend! Hope you all have a good one!
