I just played with the stitch on black and white squares – with added beads…
Week 2 of TAST 2012 on http://www.pintangle.com
This is worked on dyed hessian fabric.
I tried buttonhole wheel, barred buttonhole wheel, long and short buttonhole, buttonhole stitch shading, up and down buttonhole and saw tooth buttonhole – lots of buttonholes but not many holes!
This is the first challenge for Take a Stitch Tuesday on Sharon Boggon’s Pintangle blog at http://www.pintangle.com
I worked the stitches on space dyed cotton towelling with lots of different threads and used beads in some of the samples.
Fly stitch is an open detached chain stitch with lots of possible variations and can be like a “V” or a “Y” depending on the length of the anchoring stitch…
