Buttonhole picots

Today I tried the buttonhole picots for week 39 and 40 of TAST. I started with the bullion variation. I used a perle 8 and a milliners needle, but couldn't get it right. Then I tried a perle 5 and made a heap of rubbish!
So I moved on to the chain variation with a perle 5,
a perle 12
amd 3 threads pf stranded DMC color variations.
It's time to try an easy stitch tomorrow!

  1. I found this stitch a bit hard to do as well--I just couldn't seem to get it right.

  3. I am still in the practicing mode, so feeling justified to work the buttonhole stitches apart. Otherwise I wouldn't know what I had done now. it is also faster to work this way. LOL!.
