Week seventeen of the TAST Challenge hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle is crossed buttonhole stitch. Sharon has posted a wonderful tutorial on how to work this stitch together with some variations and lovely examples for inspiration.
I had never worked this stitch before and was keen to learn how to work it.
I practised the stitch on my sampler in a red variegated silk thread and I love how it looks.
I can see that it is a stitch that I am going to use in future projects. That is what is so wonderful about taking part in the TAST Challenge.... you are adding lots of new stitches to your embroidery repertoire.
