TAST Week Forty-Three: Buttonhole Wheel Cup

This week's stitch for the TAST Challenge hosted by Sharon Boggon at Pin Tangle  is stitch forty-three, buttonhole wheel cup.  This stitch is a variation of the buttonhole wheel and is a lot of fun to stitch.  You can find Sharon's tutorial for it here.


Luckily these little buttonhole wheels are circular, so they fit right in with the theme of my latest sampler.


I added three of them next to the fern stitch circle I stitched last week.  I used variegated silk thread and I added a few colonial knots in the middle to make them look like flowers.

  3. Oh how I wish I had seen this post last week! I had to embellish a little gift and wanted something a bit unusual to embroider. I love the variegated thread you've used.

  7. These are so cute! Love the final touch of the knots! I've never used silk thread... I guess, I should give it a try some time. Happy stitching! Ariadna.
