Okay, I definitely struggled with this stitch. I thought perhaps if I looked at some different instructions that would help. There were no other instructions to be found. Getting beaten by an embroidery stitch makes me feel like a dork! Normally I would persist until I mastered it. I just don't have time for that this week and frankly I don't like the stitch well enough. It is highly unlikely that I would ever use the stitch so why waste my time. We can't love them all.
