TAST 2012 #02: Buttonhole Stitch

I joined the Take A Stitch Tuesday project in 2012 to teach myself embroidery and learn from others; these are my stitches.
There is a new 2018 version active; visit this website if you would like to join or just have a look at all the beautiful stitching.

Also named Blanket Stitch. Or maybe they’re not the same after all… I started out stitching from bottom to top, but later realised it was supposed to go the other way.
I had some experience with this stitch because of my felt crafts, but I had no idea how many variations it could make. I like this one!
