TAST 2012 - Week 49

Week 49 - Buttonhole Eyelet Flower Stitch
Sharon found this stitch in the A-Z Embroidery Stitches: v. 2 - it is called the Buttonhole Eyelet Flower Stitch.  

You first work a buttonhole wheel and then you work bullion knots around the edge of the wheel. I got a little carried away wrapping the thread around the needle for some of the petals... the loops are a bit loopsided...

I used 4 strands of floss for the orange flower, Perle #12 for the purple and perle #5 for the orangish flower.  You can see many more samples at TAST 2012
