TAST first block - Buttonhole stitch

This block is not yet finished as I have some more buttonhole to do around the Ginko leafs.

I'm quiet happy with the result.

I used DMC thread for the leafs and stems, just added some DMC perlé to give some more shape to the stems and covered them with one strand cotton.

The variegated thread used for the seam and the first rows of buttonhole is coming from Romania, and I completely forgot to keep the name ;o(

My nephew Quentin told me that the circles down right make he thinks to a lemon slice, so I added one more row in yellow perlé to finish the design.

Your sketching out of the stitch diagrams first looks very helpful.
Why don't I ever do that?

Very nice.

It looks to me rather Japanese orange than lemon. Your ginkgo leaves stitched sashiko work(?) are simply nice.

Japanese orange than! I'll tell to Quentin
