So here is the first part of my Stitch Sunday Challenge, stacked buttonhole wheel. I know buttonhole wheel is an old favorite, but I was asked about variants of it on my sampler so I decided this would be the starting point. Stacked buttonhole wheel is simply buttonhole wheels worked over each other.
If you want to join me in this, just try it out, post it on your blog, flickr or where ever else, and leave a comment with a link here. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
First thing, work a buttonhole wheel as usual.
Next, work a smaller buttonhole wheel over it, putting the new spikes over the old ones.
For the outer ring, work buttonhole stitches over the outer border of the first buttonhole wheel.
Now this is the finished result. I probably should have used some contraption to draw proper circles before stitching. Of course, your circles can beas messy or orderly as you want. They don’t even need to be round.
You can use both stacking methods like me or only one, or think up an entirely new one.

OK, I guess the text of these posts gets boring, but I have no idea how to make that un-boring (is this even a word?)
So here we go. This section shows some more TAST stitches, buttonhole wheel cup, and some other buttonhole wheel variant, namely whipped and woven buttonhole wheels.
The last row is my take on beaded feathered chain stitch.

So here is the next part of my sampler. You see chain stitches as lines and a row of feathered chain stitch. Next, there is field full of buttonhole wheels. The next lilac lines are back stitch variations. Then there is more feathered chain stitch and beaded feathered chain stitch.
These were stitches from Sharon’s challenge, take a stitch tuesday. The last line shows a variant of feathered chain stitch that is different from hers.
