This week at Take a Stitch Tuesday, the challenge is to explore the buttonhole stitch. This is a detail of a sample I did when I was studying with the Open College of the Arts. It was inspired by the work of Jan Beaney who is one of the masters of free surface stitchery.
Today, I worked on a postcard. I used variegated cotton thread by Caron. Now, I'm going to add more stitches to it, but with thinner threads. Maybe I'll do some beading too.
