TAST Week 6 Buttonhole Eyelet Flower

Week 6 on the TAST challenge is Buttonhole Eyelet Flower which is a combination of a buttonhole wheel and a Bullion stitch.
The Buttonhole wheel is worked first and then the Bullion petals are worked around the outer edge of the wheel.
These are the ones that I have worked on my practise sample first and now I have to work them on the proper sampler.
I like doing Bullion stitch as a flower because I think it always looks lovely with its raised petals.


Sorry about the shadow across the bottom of the photo --that is my boof head getting in the way.

I love these chunky little flowers - another useful stitch to know Doreen.

This looks like a fun stitch to play with. Really like the pretty colours you have used.
