TAST - Take a stitch Tuesday, week 2 - Take two

A bit more playing with the buttonhole stitch.
As I was scanning some other blogs, I came
across Jo in NZ, the leaves she shared using the
buttonhole stitch, had to give them a try and they
are so cool, thank you Jo for sharing these.

Then I thought about making a rose, my first attempt
in the red thread on the right. I decided instead to
draw a flower out first and then stitch the drawing and
this is what I came up with. I am pleased with the
result, and will try it again in different shades of reds.
It would be great in pinks, yellows and whites, even
lavender, just using different shades in order to show up
the different petals better. This was done in a variegate
thread, Wildflower in Painted Desert shade.

Just another look at the free hand work, I need to work
more on the palm tree and perfect it, but it is a start.

And, LOL, I fixed the date on my camera......VGB.

Oh, I missed the roses last time. Don't know how, since they are at the top. Duh! That is really beautiful, Gail. How pretty that would be in some variegated threads. Little pkg. in the mail yesterday to you, btw.

Gail, I never saw your comment about my buttonhole leaves!
I love the rose, what a great idea, now I will file this away and try it sometime. Thanks for the backlink, I don't know how to do that.
