This was a learning piece for a band sampler (which I will probably never do :) taught at A Stitcher's Gathering in 2000. Both pieces were finished with nun's stitch and then stitched together with running stitch. It is my first fob! :) The "cord" was made with a finger-weaving technique taught to me by a friend.
