Just a few more variations and I am finishing this buttonhole stitch sampler for TAST challenge.

A variation of buttonhole stitch, whipped with rimjim thread.
Closed feather stitch is sandwiched between, two rows of buttonhole stitches
A row of buttonhole stitch, a row of closed and open herringbone stitch, ending with buttonhole stitch variation.

I tried working butterfly chain stitches with the buttonhole stitches, embellished with beads.
At last it happened , I finally ran out of ideas for this stitch. LOL!

I had drawn my ideas on a paper , before stitching, still some variations were a surprise, some were fine, and some were even disappointing. Over all I enjoyed working on this sampler, which by itself was learning process .
