Trivet with Disappearing Octagons

Filed under: ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter, Pieces of Eight

The 4 octagons are going into a trivet & is the last of the Pieces of Eight project which we began last year at ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter. This matches the coasters & napkin rings to make a nice set.

I finished the edges in a blanket stitch to match what I’d done with the coasters. But because I used the same color & stitch for the background, even the lighter weight thread is not sufficient to distinguish the main shape of the large octagon. So, I’m going to have to outline the larger octagons in a color – maybe green – ‘cuz I’m not ripping out!

Yeah – it has to be bad – I do enough ‘unstitching’ as I watch TV & zone out without letting some of it just be.
