That is the title in my mind for my TAST buttonhole stitch. As I have mentioned the challenge gets to us on Monday evening so on Tuesday night I went to bed thinking of how you do buttonhole stitch and how I could experiment. For some reason Wings came into my head, and then flying cubes. True to my new self (well it is only the second week of January, give me time to revert...) I started trying to draw what was in my head and by whatever magical process it is that goes on suddenly I knew what I wanted to do.
The scan is not A1 I may try to replace it with a photograph tomorrow.
So what have I learned about buttonhole stitch, I think the main thing is that this is not a stitch for cutting corners. It needs to be coaxed. For the caterpillars I worked them in buttonhole and then wrapped them with the same yarn. The jewel under the ring is held down with buttonhole stitch which I am telling you because otherwise you wouldn't know I had been so thorough!!!!
