I am participating in Sharon Boggons Take A Stitch Tuesday. http://www.inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/Buttonhole.html. This is my sampler of some buttonhole stitch variations so far. I've a lonnnnnggg way to go yet, but this is a start. I'm really enjoying the varity of ideas that folks are coming up with for this. First are the flowers that can be made with the button hole stitch. These can be seen at http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/11/embroidered-flowers-using-buttonhole.html. I've actually used this stitch on pansies for some DYB rr's i've been in. It's a great idea for Holly hocks, etc. Then there's Pam Kelloggs ideas that can be found at http://kittyandmedesigns.blogspot.com/ She always comes up with some good information and ideas to use with different stitches. Give them a try! I better get going and see what else I can conjure up! :_)
