A hole is cut in the fabric and a contratsting thread is used so the type of mending stitch could be well seen. Various weaving stitches are used on one piece of linen thus creating a darning sampler. Enlarge the photos to see the various stitches.
This sampler was suspended from the ceiling and glass on both sides of the frame to view the front (above).....
A couple of these photos are glared because of the glass in the frames. Depending on where they hung in the church, I sometimes was unable to take a really good photo.
I will share the last set of samplers with you on Sunday. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
