This week's stitch made creating a tree a bit tricky. I was tempted to do another topiary, but instead decided to create this tree and use up some remaining threads to make it very colorful.
Here is my closeup. For the sun...flower...whatever, I worked the detached buttonhole edging looser as I worked away from the center circle. I am very pleased with the lacy look of it. For the trunk I did two straight stitches and then a sort of buttonhole looping over both strands to give the trunk some bulk.
Fun stitch I will be using again in the future. It is actually rather addictive. See more details and links to how other stitchers have used this stitch on Sharon's blog.
