TAST week 2 highlights

Once again its time to make a cuppa, settle down to browse and learn by seeing what others have done with this weeks challenge stitch Buttonhole.

Again I had real trouble picking out highlights from the collection of stitches that people worked last week. However there are a couple this week were real stand outs as the approach was so creative I am sure you will agree me.  I hope you enjoy seeing what I have featured.

Well someone in the comments said that  “I still have not got the right fabric” but who said anything about fabric!

Swing over to Chittle Chattle for the full post on buttonholing this. It will be interesting to see when the skin dries out!

Zaz in Sweden is stitching on wood!

Konnykards is mixing fabrics on a sampler.

Another person working with cloth along side paper is Lin of Lin’s Arty Blobs

 Another person mixing foundation cloth is Tenar of Tenar’s Cave.

Over on Silk and Stitch you can see a freeform sample worked on felt.

I really took pleasure in this simple elegant approach over on Borduublog

Another simple approach with a European aesthetic is found on Jenaissance


Finally over on Threads and Patches there is this lovely motif.

I hope you have enjoyed this TAST highlights feature. Tomorrow there is a new stitch!

  1. I am so pleased to be amongst so many talented embroiderers and greatly appreciate having my Button Hole Stitch highlighted. Thank you Sharon.
    Maybe I'm the oldest person taking this challenge, at 76, but no one enjoys it more than me and it's never too late to learn!

  2. I have been so inspired by all of the stitchery and wonderful use of the stitches. This is a thrilling adventure and I am happy to be part of it.

    It would be hard to pick out the pieces for 'highlights' that is for sure.

    Thanks again Sharon for your work in doing this.

    Hugs ~ FlowerLady
