Sharon at Take a stitch Tuesday calls this Kiko's Flower stitch which is made up of buttonhole wheel stitch and a bullion knot. I've made them into flowers and in the centre there are French knots or beads. Read more about the stitch at Pintangle.

My plan was to post a photo of the new TAST stitch which I have done but I didn't notice that my camera wasn't set right and the picture looked bad. So here is a drawing of vegetables to be going on with.

A couple of creations drawn on my tablet. I used one of the brushes in sketchbook pro for the tree stump and branches.
I don't know if anyone remembers that I was going to enter a quilt in a competition [Imagine - Patchwork Europe] but I didn't finish it in time for entry. Well I didn't enter but my friend Helen did and this is her lovely quilt 'In the library at night'. I'm not surprised she won a prize - well done Helen! Click on the image for a closer look.

Take a stitch Tuesday [TAST 131]
Three variations of beaded lock stitch. Stitched on an aida band with cotton pearl threads.
I think I should have straightened the beads out a bit on the left hand row before taking the photo, they're supposed to be opposite each other.
