For my raised herringbone band, I started with a satin stitch base worked in variegated fine silk thread. I then added the herringbone stitches using pink perle cotton (8) and finished by weaving a variegated perle cotton (5) through the herringbone stitches. I am pleased with the results.
The stitch for week 76 was 'whipped chain stitch' of which there are two versions. I added a line of both to my new sampler. Sharon's tutorial for both of these stitches is here.
For the first line I added I stitched the base chain stitch with pale apricot perle cotton (8) and then whipped it using variegated fine silk thread. In this version of the stitch the whole chain stitch is whipped each time.
The second line is the other variation which whips first one side of the base chain stitch and then the other. For this line I stitched the base chain stitch with blue perle cotton (8) and then whipped it using variegated fine silk thread.
I am already pleased with how my new sampler is looking.... can you see a design emerging?
