Apologies to Bea Dollmayer

Bea, you asked about a stitch. I'm so sorry. I haven't been watching my blog lately.
It's just simple buttonhole stitch over a thread.

For the piece you asked about, I tacked down the first thread before I started to stitch over it, and then just carried on working in rounds, gradually building it up, without taking the needle through the backing fabric.

I used it on this box too, but I here took the needle into the fabric with each buttonhole stitch.

Dear Susan!

Thank you for your answer, it will be great help for me. I don't know what is wrong with my email, but thank you again for your effort, to write me. I got it just right in time, so please don't feel bad. I would like to try something with this technik in May, so I still have a lot of time to pratice it :)
