Old buttonhole bars

TAST stitch 65 is buttonhole bar. There's no time to stitch , but I do have some old buttonhole bar samples to share. 

This is a detail on Nefertiti with 2 buttonhole bars, a cast on stitch and lots of French knots above the pulled thread.
My second sample is a detail on my embroidery Touch. I used the buttonhole bars to attach a wooden donut bead.
A raised buttonhole bar on my first pebble. I explained how I stitched this here.
Three buttonhole bars on my second pebble, which is still a work in progress. 
I twisted the thread around the foundation stitches after each 8-12 stitches.
