I read them and decided I should have a nap! Not something I do very often but it is that kind of day. I came back to the instructions with fresher eyes but I still didn't get it. I searched for some other instructions but could not find any. I did find http://letslearnembroidery.blogspot.ca/2011/04/frilled-buttonhole-stitch.html and it was close enough that I got it.
I am not embarrassed to post my struggles with this stitch. It is helpful to know when others struggle with something. Plus I am not addicted to perfection. It is the learning process that I enjoy and I am glad that I persisted with it even though it isn't perfect.
