On bits and pieces of sewing/embroidery in boxes...

On bits and pieces of sewing/embroidery in boxes :-) I recently came across on the blog of Sharon B in Australia on a sampler she is stitching called “For the love of stitching” on her blog you can see here. I have dig out all my odds and ends embroidered pieces I have sewed (that never made it into a final finish product and usable item), measured them and came up with a size band sampler (13cm wide) that can accommodate most of them sewed together. Some bits are not wide enough and I will add on pretty fabric to make up 13cm and others are too wide that I need to trim down. My band sampler is called “Embroidery Doodles and Stitching Diary” and here's the start to it...

I have used 28ct linnen that I have colored with some silk paint and added a pretty piece of quilting fabrick. I would like to repeat the pattern in some of the stitching.

On the frame.... I'm itching to start!
Official start date : 28 February 2009 of my Sampler : Embroidery Doodles and Stitching Diary
