Algerian Eye Stitch Details

As promised, I’m starting to post details of my stitch along sampler. This is the top section. The two algerian eye stitch filling patterns in pink should be self-explanatory.

The green fillings are surrounded by mini-algerian eyes done with one strand embroidery floss over 4 aida squares in total. The variegated green filling is regular algerian eye stitch, starting at the top with 4 strands of floss and then one less until the last row, which is one strand of floss. For the solid green filling the same strengths of thread were used, but a weel spike was stitched into every hole of the aida.
