TAST WEEK 39 - Knotted Buttonhole Stitch
This week's tast challenge, knotted buttonhole stitch is an interesting one. It is most apt for border and used as filling stitch.
This is my first needle tatting flower. I heard the name needle tatting for the first time through Ms.Annet's blog (fat quarter). It is easier than shuttle tatting. It took me many years to learn the technique. I bought a shuttle 20 years back and kept it idle because i didn't know how to use it and after ten years, I have learnt the technique through Coats Needle'n Thread magazine. I feel Shuttle tatting is little time consuming process but this needle tatting is better. I tried some and converted them into book marks. Thanks to needle tatting and other nonsense blog. In this blog the tutorials are much helpful to learn needle tatting.
