WIPW - Pleated Paper

Did you know that  WIPW means Work In Progress Wednesday? No? Well, go to Pintangle to learn all about it and see lots of great progress on various needlework projects. You won't be sorry!

Here are my efforts:

Kafferepet
I quilted the cup cake block. As these cakes are in pleated paper cups I wanted an embroidery stitch for the quilting that reflected the shape. The best answer was Buttonhole stitch, the second TAST stitch we learned a long time ago.

  I used a brown-beige variegated thread from Oliver Twist.

Swedish Cushion
Here I worked the two hearts and some circles.
The heart on the left is #43 Magic Chain
The one on the right is #58 Woven Detached Chain (in two colours)
The circle on the left is #22 Buttonhole Wheel (well, one is more of a ring,  I guess)
The circle on the right is #46  Buttonhole Eyelet Flower

  4. I had a long look at the cupcakes to see what you did with the buttonhole stitch. Finally I saw the twist. I'm not familiar with the Oliver Twist thread, but it looks nice to stitch. I like your heart with woven detached chain, it matches beatifully with the magic chain.

    1. For this section of the Swedish cushion I wanted to find stitches that mirrored each other as much as possible, hence the Magic Chain and the Woven Detached Chain. I am glad #94 Reversed Buttonhole Bar can be worked in a circle. I have some more circles to find stitches for.
