Felt Donuts–TAST revisited

It is cold around here of late, and all our minds are thinking about is food.  CARBOHYDRATE type food!!  This is even reflected in my stitching – LOL
I have done my small sample for TAST Week 28, Up and Down Buttonhole stitch.  There is a great yawning gap between the last TAST sample and this one – like- uhhhm – 7 weeks!  You might say I am a little bit behind.
Even though I took my stitching with me on our last trip, it is difficult to stitch when travelling to the far away (filthy dirty) places we travel too.  One never feels clean enough to handle the stitching.  Camping in sand and red dust is just not conducive to it.

(Felt Donuts)
The circle theme on Sketchbook Challenge was my inspiration for this piece.  That border of very close U & D b/hole stitch nearly drove me mad,  and I was wondering why I do it to myself???? 
I am really keen on having a go at the next stitch, basque stitch, if I get some time – it looks very interesting.

Fabulous border, Di! You've used the UDB stitch very nicely couching those felt donuts. I'm hungry, now.....

I can only admire you with your border ! you have been very patient with that and it came out very even. A nice frame for your circles. Oh, I know, stitching in the dirt!....haha.
It really is not inspiring - I am suffering the same pains as you. Your circles are a nice theme

Love your felt donuts Dianne, and I think I have a bigger gap in my TAST samples!! This sampler is lovely of course, and I must congratulate you on the border, well done to keep it so neat and soooooooooo close together. Stay warm.

This is a really interesting design Di, and the use of the felt circles is a great idea. I agree with everyone else about the border your work and creativity grows with every sampler.
