The stitch for week 2 on Take a Stitch Tuesday is the buttonhole stitch. I'm hoping to experiment some more but this is what I've done so far. On the right I was playing with a leaf shape. On the bottom, I made the buttonhole stitch different lengths and made them crooked. I was thinking of grass or stems. Then I wove a fuzzy yarn around the bottom of the stitches. I added the french knots just to give the idea of flowers there. The top was just an attempt at couching down a piece of yarn with the button hole stitch.
I really need to find my embroidery hoops so I can keep the fabric tight. Or use something like I last week. Last week, I used a brown paper bag which was crumpled, colored and fused to peltex. I also need to start drawing lines so the embroidery stays straight.
