Old up and down buttonhole stitches

The TAST stitch for week 28 is up and down buttonhole stitch. It’s one of the stitches I use frequently on the seams of my CQ. But of course I start with a detail of my TAST 2007 sampler. It’s stitched with 2 threads of stranded floss on muslin. The complete TAST 2007 sampler is here.
This is a seam on a crazy African ornament. It´s done in cotton a broder.
This seam is part of block 12 of my Crazy Monday quilt. It´s done with 2 threads of stranded floss and decorated with French knots.
This seam is part of block 8 of my Crazy Monday quilt. It´s done with 2 threads of stranded floss. I flipped the arms from side to side and decorated it with beads.
This last seam is part of my ATC Crazy Apples. It´s done with 2 threads of stranded floss and decorated with bullion knots.
