Old buttonhole wheel cups

The TAST stitch for week 43 is buttonhole wheel cup. I still remember what happened when I stitched this for TAST 2010, I couldn’t stop stitching until my 
3 x 3 inch square was filled with stitches! I posted a slideshow about the making of my sampler here. The threads are perle 5, 8 and 12.
This detail is part of my last TAST 2010 sampler. I was catching up on the last stitches and repeated a lot of the others. The thread is perle 8.
A detail on my embroidery Touch. The thread is perle 5. It has an extra round of stitches and a French knot inside.
There are a few different buttonhole wheel cups on my embroidery Nefertiti. This one is stitched in perle 5 and surrounded with a buttonhole bar and lots of French knots in different threads.
A work in progress detail on my embroidery Nefertiti. This buttonhole wheel cup is stitched in Stef Francis spun silk with flames, a lovely thread that changes in colour and thickness.
In her post today, Sharon asked us if we would like it if she continues with TAST next year. Please visit Pin Tangle and tell her what you think of that.
