Buttonhole wheel cups

The TAST stitch for week 43 is buttonhole wheel cup. It was the perfect stitch to finish my rust dyed sampler. First I made a buttonhole wheel cup in stranded floss, 2 threads for the wheel and 4 threads for the edge.
This buttonhole wheel cup is stitched in Caron Wildflowers. The complete sampler is on my Flickr-page.
I also added a big buttonhole wheel cup at my 4th block for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create. The thread is cotton a broder. With the same thread I added some French knots and Sorbello stitches. I’m damp stretching it and hope to share a photo of the finished block soon.

  2. these stitches have all worked very well, did not think to do the fancy bit with extra thread, gives it more body.
