The Octagon

Tonight I filled in the spaces left in the + to create an octagon. I used 205C cord to create four more Sprat's heads patterns. I did darken this a little so you could see a better photo.
I really like how this is developing. Just as a reminder this is still all part of Lesson one!

Your questions, comments: Yes, I do like doing the rotation stitching, although not because it was boring to work on any one piece. These are all interesting pieces. I find I can pick up where I left off very quickly. The Kick Back and Stitch piece will be finished tomorrow night and I will be adding a new piece into the rotation. More info tomorrow.

This is quite an amazing piece, isn't it? Very intricate, yet you're working it up so quickly. Looking forward to seeing the Kick back piece tomorrow.

Interesting to see how the patterns are emphasized by using the neutral colors. Bet this is even better in person when you can see the gold shine and the ecru details. Nice job, Pat.
