I've had these stitches in my flickr account for a week or so and am finally getting around to posting about them.
Here we have 3 types of Up and Down Buttnhole stitch (I am nothing if not behind on this challenge!):
Using #5 perle cotton.
Using Caron's Impressions cotton thread and #8 (I think) perle cotton.
Using Soie de Alger silk thread. This one would be great for grass.
NEXT... Bonnet Stitch!
Using #5 Perle cotton.
And last but not least, Knotted Cretan Stitch:
Using #8 perle cotton.
I like all these stitches, but I think I will use the Up and Down Buttonhole the most with Knotted Cretan a close second. I like the Bonnet stitch, too; however, I'm not sure I will use it much. I need to experiment with it a bit more to see what I can do with it.
There's not enough time to do everything I want to do! Gah!
