More TAST Tag Stitching

The stitch for this week was the Buttonhole Wheel. 

Here is a closeup of the trees.  The floss I used was kind of wonky and I had problems with it separating, but for practice this was fine. 

I've also used this stitch on previous projects, here:

I also experimented some more with Shisha and went ahead and created a tag for it as reference.

Here is my 'money topiary tree'

I also did a separate little tree (you really have to use your imagination for my trees you know).  This is my penny tree.  I followed the tutorial on Anita's blog, ArtisticFingers.  I found it very easy to follow using just 3 basic stitches and I am quite pleased with the results.
