CQPJ and TAST week 49 December 1012

The first week in December  for Take A Stitch Tuesday  used the Buttonhole Eyelet flower stitch.   This stitch is a combination of Button hole wheel and Bullion stitch which we had earlier in the year.

CQJP & TAST week 16

This weeks stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday  http://pintangle.com/tast-faq/ was French Knot…also known as French dot, knotted stitch, twisted knot stitch and wound stitch.  All but the wound stitch seemed appropriate.  I had only used this stitch as the center of flowers on pillowcases so I tried it as an outline for some cactus shapes.

On the third quarter of my April Crazy Quilt Journal Project http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/ I already had some rickrack.  This quarter is very simple with only the addition of a little running stitch and French knot stitches.
