TAST No. 118- Beaded Buttonhole and No.119 Woven Trellis stitch

Here is my sample for the Beaded Buttonhole, which was quick, simple and offers ideas for various designs.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI did a short sample of this stitch on the left side.  Then I played with sloping varieties.

The longer yellow sample began while I was watching a Wimbledon tennis match (The 19 y.o Aussie, Kyrgios, beat Nadal) and I obviously got carried away and did not count spaces correctly.               I’m leaving it as a warning to myself to concentrate on one thing at a time.

I stitched one whole line and then worked backward.  I left a single Aida row between but it does not sit well.

The last version is how I meant the pattern to be and I did the second row as close to the first as possible.

I had stitched Woven Trellis back in 2010 and the link to this work is here and here

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis work was also done for TAST 2 in 2010

DMC perle 8 green and – from memory- Sassa Lynne variegated thread for the flowers.

 

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is today’s effort.  DMC Perle 5 pink and red threads. DMC 5 green, with little twist to it.

I worked into one hole for the centre pink and left the straight stitches as I like them this way.  The other pair have a small square space under the green bead.

I fancied a wreath and shortened the stitches to make berries.  No centre hole left for the first 3  and  square spaces for those on the right.  It is harder to get the needle through the bulk of threads so I found it faster and easier to keep the centre open and cover it with a bead (which I’ve forgotten to add)

  1. i like your yellow beaded buttonhole stitch. Your woven trellis remind me of a pattern on an old teacup I saw a long time ago.

  2. Beautiful samples -sweet stitching. Anneliese at anaslua2.blogspot.com

  3. Thank you Annet and Anneliese, your comments are much appreciated.

  4. NEVER watch tennis and stitch at the same time!
    I like both your old and new Trellis stitches. perfect for making flowers.

    • I surely won’t need a reminder about stitching and tennis Queenie – one mistake is enough.

  5. So many great ideas for beaded stitches. Inspiring.
