Carol - TAST, Buttonhole Wheel

Really enjoyed sewing this week's stitch and as Debra said "more for your money", or something similar. 
Row of half Buttonhole wheels stitched in perle 8 with silver beads.

Sarah should certainly be enjoying sunshine and flowers on her journeys around the Med.  
Lots of tiny buttonhole wheels, masses of French Knots and sore fingers. 
I do like a little texture on my blocks!
Again sewn using perle 8.

Love the buttonhole circles/french knot trail! And the half circles in the variegated thread and beads looks so good. Lucky Sarah!

You really achieved some wonderful texture with your small buttonhole wheels and French knots. They join your images together so well. The half wheels look wonderful in the variegated thread, especially on the variegated fabric.

I wish I were with Sarah right now. Nice floral texture, love the color variations too. And of course I love the purple wheels.

Those splashes of green ribbons against the pink/purple fabric is really making this block POP. It's a great colour combo.
The French Knot and buttonhole wheel trail is delicious and delectable. Well worth suffering with the sore fingers, lol.

I love the color and texture of your French knot and buttonhole wheel cluster! Nice swoopy shape!

The cluster is great, but I really like the whole row/seam of half wheels. The block is coming together so beautifully, and very Mediterranean!
