My first try at this

I thought I would give TAST a go after seeing the posts from last week.  I read somewhere (and for the life of me I can't remember where) that Press and seal was ideal for transferring an image to be embroidered.  Tried it and found I had a hard time getting it off after the graphic was finished.  Maybe it is because of the state of my hands! 
This week the stitch is the buttonhole stitch.  I still haven't mastered taking pictures yet.  Here is my go at it.

From Meandering With My Muse


  1. Very pretty! I wouldn't have thought of using buttonhole stitch this way, but it works! Looks like the willow tree in my yard when I was a kid. Happy Stitching!

  2. I like tour tree very much. This is a very interesting use of the buttonhole stitch.
