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.
