When combining arrow stitches with other stitches, the other stitches are worked in lighter colour thread, and arrow stitches in darker thread.
The whole sampler was worked with cone thread, which is similar to perle cotton, but which unravels fast when the thread is twisted often.  but  with lots of colour options, they were ideal for working  this stitch.
In this sampler , I did not use different threads or beads. Using them would have given  another dimension to this stitch.

I enjoyed working on this stitch sampler.
