It can't be time for another stitch already. I don't know this one either. Could we alternate between the known and unknown? OK, done whining.

There's a reason it's called a challenge.

Really?!? C'mon Debra, I said I was done whining ~ lol. Now a good nights sleep will re-energize me. Actually this stitch doesn't look too bad. I'll be ready to take a go at it in the morning.

Debra Spincic said...

I hope I have to eat my words; but, this stitch doesn't look like that much fun.

This one isn't in any of my books either......

Connie, in Sharon's examples feel sure there's a tree!

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

We may all be playing catch-up then??

Debra Spincic said...

No, that's next week, maybe. It would have made more sense to have it this 5th Tuesday of the month; but, no one asked me.

If you can't follow Sharon's dictionary example, try Sarah's tutorial. It's very clear.
