Crossed Buttonhole Stitch-1


This week Sharon has announced Crossed Buttonhole Stitch. Visit her site for more details. I could not work much as I am busy with my work. I tried this stitch for the first time and it was confusing for the first ten minutes or so. Then I picked it up. Here is my first attempt:

Crossed Buttonhole Stitch, closed version, with beads.
with Running Stitch, Detached Chain Stitch and beads.

Watch out for more.......

The bottom one, with beads and detached cahin stitch, reminds me of candles. The stitch is a lot more creative than I gave it credit for, at first.
