Glad you didn't do them in black cuz they're so pretty this way! I love the buttonhole circles with the flowers in their centers. I am so anxious to see the whole thing with its borders.
Totally love the old fashioned looking buttonhole circles with the little flowers.I think the woven picots would be pretty on your piece. Maybe you could do them on a small, dainty scale with fine thread.
I'll add my 2¢ for the circles with flowers, it appeals to me love of vintage linens. Love blackwork too and working it on the gingham looks great!
I agree, the buttonhole circles look so attractive coming off your seam as do the blackwork stitching - everything flows.
And maybe not. =) I have one more section to do on the first one. No telling what will be on there. I only have two weeks for each border, so I'm not doing much that requires a learning curve.
Thanks for your comments. I enjoyed doing those buttonhole curves and making the rosettes. I'm going to add beads to the blackwork, too.
They are very easy. I thought they were going to be hard but they are one of the easiest stitches we've done.
The blackwork stitch is really nice and adds a lot of movement. Add me to the 'buttonhole circles fan list'. I like the way the BHCs echo the shape of the lace.
That is serendipity. I didn't even think about it. =) Thanks!
Some very interesting designs here Susan. I love the addition of the rosettes. I wish that strip of fabric was longer so that there were more BHC's to see =)It's looking a lovely block so far. Fabulous stitching.
