A few more experiments with the stitch, colours and textures were done on this sampler today. after completing these, the piece was outlined with running stitch.

A set of three bullion Vandyke in different widths were worked with variegated thread. The bullion was worked at the starting point of the stitch in dark green thread. This idea was on my mind, but never thought it could work.

I alternated the original bullion Vandyke stitch with bullion[starting point] Vandyke stitch in light orange skein. This looks like bullion cretan stitch worked over cretan stitches. The stitches are worked horizontally in green perle cotton between the next parallel lines.

Bullion Vandyke stitch worked in green thread is whipped with variegated thread on the plain side. Reverse bullion Vandyke stitches are worked in two colours [orange and yellow]. This variation also was interesting.

This design, colour, stitch sampler is completed. I am wishing to continue these studies in stitch, colour and texture on my future projects too.

My tailor is back from is vacation, I had given a light green mangalagiri striped cotton fabric for marking the front of the tunic. After tracing the pattern, started herringbone filling in silk thread, stem stitch in perle thread. This pattern has provision for mirrors.
