Embroidery Stitch Sampler -- In Progress Backstitches

Working on this sampler, but showing an update. I did so much my fingers hurt and realize I need some thimbles.

Used muslin fabric I had.
Blue ombre J&P floss thread.

I thought of doing 6 inch wide as I saw on another blog, but I like my 8 inch wide, so I'm adding the stitch name. I'll do that on future sampler blocks. The 6 inch wide us a bit less then the hoop, so it's easier to keep going.

After this is done, I'll do an actual project with these stitches. I'll do that each time. This way I can see progress from my practice/sampler pieces.
