TAST week 64 and 65 are Top knotted buttonhole and buttonhole bar. Top knotted buttonhole stitch was a bit tricky and I have to practice for sometime to get it right and I still think it is not perfect. Buttonhole bar stitch I used to do at school in my tailoring class as an eye for the hook instead of using metal eye.

Knotted cable chain
is another beautiful stitch introduced by Sharon on TAST week 51,last stitch for 2012.. I really liked this stitch and I find it easy and beautiful while working with perle thread. Other stitches used from the same family are chain, twisted chain and detached chain.
Many many thanks to you Sharon for all the efforts taken on this venture and thanks to dear friends for your encouragement.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year .

TAST week 50 - Berry stitch is very easy to do and I like it. I used two different colour perle 5 threads for the wings of the owl and perle and stranded cotton for the leaves.
I could not post the week 49 stitch, buttonhole eyelet flower , last week hence did two small flowers in this sampler. Other stitches used are back and satin.
