Take A Stitch Tuesday challenge. I knew it would happen once gardening season hit.. but I am not abandoning ship! No sirree! I'm slowly plugging away..I do have this week's stitch done and one previous... Week 20- Butterfly Chain and this week's is Up and Down Buttonhole. I will do my best to do several a week until I am caught up again. They may be out of order, but they'll get done. (For fellow TAST participants - my "numbering" is "off" from Sharon's as I am numbering the stitches, I am not counting the Catch-Up weeks. Just FYI...)
So here we go - Week 26 is Up and Down Buttonhole- a fun variation of Buttonhole stitch. Once again I am doing a "sampler" format, not being as creative as some of the talented participants!
From the top, I have done "straight" Up and Down Buttonhole, then varied the length of the arms, angled the arms with even and uneven lengths, added a detached chain between the arms, stacked two rows unevenly and evenly with beads added, and finally at the very bottom an alternating row. I enjoy doing this stitch and have used it many times, often with a detached chain or straight stitches added in the center.
Have a look at the following post to see Week 20 - Butterfly Chain Stitch....
