I worked on the borders of the Octagons some more. There are eight pointed stars, and over 3 and 4 Rhodes stitches. I have them almost all done, but moved up to start some other stitching for a while! The top Octagon is going to be filled with the Rose pattern. There are several designs given in the pattern and you choose which four you want to work and where you wan to place them--how cool is that?!
