This week the TAST stitch is Up and Down Buttonhole stitch.
When I first attempted this stitch I couldn't see how it was going to work but once I got going it was easy.
I can see a lot of uses for this stitch.
My samples this week are done with Perle5 and they are both variegated threads.
The first row is a basic Up and Down Buttonhole stitch.
The second row I stepped the stitches and opened the top up to look like leaves-I also added a flower sequin held in place with a tiny bead.
In the last row I alternated the thread and I like the look of this.
The fabric I have used is a beige linen not an evenweave.
