A circle on the same sampler, also with 2 threads of stranded floss. At the time
I didn’t know I could use different threads.
One more detail on the same sampler. Here I couched knitting cotton with crossed buttonhole stitches. I liked the fluffy edges, so I didn’t hide them. I wrote about my complete TAST 2007 sampler here.
This is a seam on the second block I made for Sharon’s Encrusted CQ class. I stitched the crossed buttonhole stitch with perle 5 and decorated it with beads and detached chain stitches with perle 12.
This last experiment is part of my bullion buttonhole sampler. It was the first time
I used a milliners needle. I stitched a combo of both stitches. In my notes I called it a crossed bullion buttonhole.
