I made some progress on my stitch/design/ colour sampler today.
This filling was first worked in perle cotton #5.
Stranded cotton threads were used for working the second row of herringbone stitches.
The next filling pattern with the first row of herringbone stitches worked with polyester thread.
Perle cotton #8 in medium blue was used for the second row of [horizontal] herringbone stitches.
Perle cotton #8 in medium pink was used for the second row of [vertical] herringbone stitches.
Brick type design worked in double herringbone stitches- threads are-polyester, and perle cotton #8
One more space within the contemporary paisley requires filling. Short lines around the paisley also need to be worked with this stitch, which I have to take care tomorrow. I feel the paisley needs a definite outline, may be couching will help there. Hoping to complete this sampler by tomorrow.
