Almost there! As you can see, I've simplified the top section quite a bit, but I think there's enough going on up there for no-one to feel there's any lack. Maybe it would've looked better with all the filling stitches put in, but, to be honest, it was getting a bit much learning so many new things on one piece. I like to have some challenge and to learn a new technique during most of my pieces, but to have so much new stuff to assimilate all in a row was really getting to me and scaring me off.
This row of three squares contains a few new things for me. I did the outer two as per the pattern, but the central one I chickened out and simplified!!
And here's the top half completed!
So, if you'll excuse me, I've no time to talk today, I must get straight on with cutting out the long border trellis sections.=)
