Take A Stitch Tuesday No. 128

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis week’s stitch is No. 128 Interlaced Up and down Butttonhole.  We have had several varieties lately for the Up and down buttonhole stitch and this is another winner.  Threads used are DMC perle 5 on Aida cloth.

The first line is the way the stitch was demonstrated.

The left side of the second line I opened the lower bars when interlacing.

The right side is my favourite of all.  I’ve already decided to add it to my hussif.

The left side- 3rd row, has top and bottom bars opened. The right side – I used two colours and played with the interlacing row.  Then I wondered if the dominant green colour would look better on top of the pale one so I reversed the threads on another row below this.  I can’t make up my mind which I prefer.

I also played with a curved line in green.

More information about TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) can be found here.  It is well worth the time to check the site.

I’M SHOUTING…I thought this morning’s work went well but, alas, I should have LOOKED properly at the demonstration printout before working any row at all.  None are correct and This last photo is the Right one.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I will re-do my samples.  :-(((

  1. As soon as I saw Sharon’s instructions I knew this was a variety of the UaDB that I would like. You have made it even more tempting with your variations!

  2. Re-do your samples? No…..say it isn’t so!! Your samples are definitely valuable the way they are.

    • Thank you marmic I did re-do a couple but left others.
