Alternating Up and Down Buttonhole Stitch

I also enjoyed working this variation of up and down buttonhole stitch. It was slightly easier to work the second and subsequent rows of stitches into the gaps between the pairs of stitches on the previous row but I found it slightly more difficult to control the tension.

These are pretty complicated stitches, but look fascinating. How about a photo of the whole sampler to date?

You may have felt it was tricky, but it looks pretty good to me!
