Almost there

Last week has been well occupied with activities other than stitching but this afternoon I did complete the Aztec Stitch on the bookmark.
Then I tacked out lines so I can do the mitred corners and finally complete this "simple job".   It has been a bit of a nightmare.   One thing I will be doing is taking some close up photos and rewriting my copy of the instructions so I don't have a repeat of this time's reversing and miscounting,
I'm thinking of doing some knitting next as a respite from the stress:)

  1. Brilliant, absolutely stunning! And it's one of those that no matter how much someone who doesn't know the stitch (me!) looks at it, it's just impossible to figure out. Drawn thread, pulled thread, and everything's wrapped?

  2. It sounds as if your experience hasn't put you off doing the Aztec Stitch again.

  4. At first glance it looks like a simple pattern but when you look closely you can see how complicated it really is. You did so well to actually complete this!
