The stitch at the top is a free form Rope Stitch

The spots are raised cross stitch

The saying is one that I heard about 20 years ago, I had it written on the back of a business card and blue tacked to the wall above my phone for many years and it helped me over many a hump in life….Here I dedicate it to my daughter for some fears she has faced and overcome.

Our greatest glory

My Band Sampler 207 – TAST II stitch 06 Eyelet Buttonhole Flower Stitch – Details 1081 to 1082 May 5th, 2010

Eyelet Buttonhole Flower

Eyelet Buttonhole flower on my box top
I didn’t do very many of these Eyelet Buttonhole flowers, I love how they look but I realy do not enjoy doing Bullion stitch…On the few I did do I tested out different thread types…The dark pink flower is a fine silk thread, the light pink flower is a soft cotton pearl twist thread, the gold flower is a Rayon Pearl twist thread.

Box for my crazy quilted box topOn My Box top I did a cluster of 3 eyelet buttonhole flowers and finished them with detached chain stitch leaves.

Knotted buttonhole stitch and easter

or Easter I used the knotted buttonhole stitch as a needle weaving fill to make a basket….I cut the eggs from a CD, drilled holes near the bottom to stitch them on below the line of the basket and painted them with acrylic paint.

My Band Sampler 205 – TAST II stitch 05 Knotted Buttonhole – Details 1071 to 1077 April 27th, 2010

Knotted buttonhole stitch

These are my first lot of Knotted Buttonhole stitch

For the second band I added 2 extra buttonhole stitches to each step.

For the third band I added 2 extra bottonhole stitches and flop flopped the stitches from side to side.

For the fourth band I did the buttonhole stitches in clusters of 3 before looping them together.

The change of background colour is for the change of the month.

For the fifth band I added the extra 2 buttonhole stitches and flip flopped the stitches so that they also topped and tailed along the line.

The last band is the basic stitch flip flopped, with the stitches topped and tailed.
