  1. It looks amazing—a real cornucopia of stitch and embellishment! I didn't comment at the time, but found your post on buttonhole/blanket stitch fascinating (I've earmarked it for future reference). I can never really decide what the difference is between the two, but as you show, tailor's buttonhole stitch is very distinct, and there are different ways to do it.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I loved making the visible mending circle after the instructions in your book, and will decorate that area of the block even more. Rest assure I will add other tricks your book is teaching me in future blocks.
      Yes, Tailor's Buttonhole is different from the Blanket/Buttonhole stitches because of the knot, and I knew that, but boy, I was surprised to learn there are so many ways to do this stitch.

  7. You have taken to CQ encrustation with enjoyment and originality of the TAST stitches too.
    I like the FKs within the Whipped Chain stitching and the double Woven Bars/silk ribbon.
