The Aztec Cometh
After 4 or 5 attempts and 4 other varieties of explanations and graphs, I finally figured out the aztec stitch. Now mind you, I am sure that the written instructions in the pattern are just fine, but being a visual person, things do not make the most sense to me when reading a description of go up here and down here and wrap around here. So, with a combination of a few great graphs, I finally did it.
It is not a hard stitch, rather one you must concentrate on each step you make. I tried watching a movie while doing it, and finally had to focus on the task at hand. I know this block will be slow and steady, but I definitely see the end is drawing near. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to get another color or 2 in.
So, here is Maria so far, in all her beautiful glory. I know at first I was skeptical with her, but she has proven herself to be worthy of all the time and frogging and stress!!!
Have a great weekend everyone :)
