1  Band Sampler Panel 1 in Needlework: Completed Projects by Mal* on: March 24, 2009 11:01:48 AM

I've started a band sampler project with 6" panels of linen that will be joined together in one continuous strip. Old-timey band samplers were rolled up and kept in the sewing box to be used as a reference as the ladies did their stitching. I don't know what mine will become eventually. Here's some more info about band samplers on my blog, though.

I've started off by documenting stitches that I already know. In this panel, you can see running stitch, back stitch, and counted cross stitch. My purpose in the band sampler is ultimately to stretch out and teach myself new stitches. I'm also using it as a kind of quasi-journal, which is why I chose Mr. Obama for the counted cross stitch section.

I wondered if anyone else would be interested in doing a stitch-along? I'd be really interested to see what other people do.
