I forgot to say previously what I have used on the sampler.
1st row is perle cotton band with broder cotton stems and hand dyed silk ribbon flowers.
2nd row is hand dyed perle cotton and Minnamurra threads with beads added.
3rd row is perle cotton laced with hand dyed variegated silk thread.
4th row is silk thread couched over 4mm silk ribbon with sequins and a french knot.
the last row has DMC thread, broder cotton,and silk thread.
I knew that all those threads etc. would come in handy one day'
