I saw the tutorial by Lakshmi of shaded buttonhole stitch with knots and i instantly liked it very much. As i have completed marking the flowers on my dress so i am making the flowers with shaded buttonhole stitch, but i am not putting the knots, the flowers are shaded buttonhole stitch without the knots.........to see the tutorial i have given the link, its done the same way but without the knots so do see the tutorial. The flowers are really coming very nice on the dress, the dress is of light parrot green colours and the flowers i have made of tomato red colour. The photos are not so clear so have to mention the colours.

Knotted buttonhole stitch is the TAST2 week 5 stitch, one who are not familiar with the stitch can see the tutorial by Sharon B. The stitch is very easy and can be twisted to your needs like done by Lakshmi, and i have also seen the work of Shirley which is very beautiful......
And below is some of my twist to the knotted buttonhole stitch.
