Here are my Crossed Buttonhole stitch. I played with the length of the arms to make them fit the flower petals. These flowers need some more stitching. Thanks to TAST a suitable stitch will turn up following weeks.
Many flowers from previous weeks have an edge of Fly Stitch. Long Armed Crossed Buttonhole stitch gives a similar but wilder effect.
When I followed TAST 2012 I wrote: “I did a few Crossed buttonhole stitches with two strands of floss on denim. This is a new stitch to me, so I need a lot of training to master it. It was not very difficult though.”
