TAST 2012 Weeks 42 and 43 - Italian Border Stitch / Buttonhole Wheel Cups

I missed last weeks stitch - too much going on (and I'm a bit late with this too) - so this week's offering has both the Italian Border Stitch and Buttonhole Wheel Cups.

It's a small sampler but I really like how colourful it is.  It also includes my first attempt at a Shisha.  I've used DFN and perle cotton threads.

It's always worth taking a look at the highlights. There are always some excellent and inspiring examples. Take a look at week 42, and this one from week 43 which was so sweet.


  1. Like your stitching, especially the mirror. Such fresh colors.

  2. Great use of the two stitches together, Lilian! I especially love your use of all the colorful threads, which is how I always like to work. Your shisha worksed out very well. It was fun when I tried it several years ago.

  3. fabulous colorful stitching and i really love your example of the buttonhole wheel cup stitch for shisha work~!!!~
    i must give that a try sometime.



Thanks for stopping by. I'm always thrilled to get feedback and appreciate you taking the time to comment.
