SBQ: Most Complicated Piece?

I’m behind on the Stitch­ing Blo­qqer Ques­tions, so I’ll do them for the next few days.

What is the most com­pli­cat­ed piece you’ve ever com­plet­ed?

I’m try­ing to fig­ure out how to judge how com­pli­cat­ed some­one else would judge a piece to be. Size? Dif­fer­ent types of stitch­es? Embell­ish­ments?

Elemental CosmosFor sheer cussed­ness, though it was worth it, I’d have to say that the Ele­men­tal Cos­mos piece designed by Witch­es Stitch­es prob­a­bly takes the cake. It didn’t use blend­ed nee­dles or spe­cial fibers or stitch­es, but there were lots of lit­tle sec­tions of “three stitch­es this col­or, four of that col­or, one stitch of anoth­er” and so on. I had to do a lot of frog­ging, too, before I fig­ured out some of the tricks of work­ing on black fab­ric. It’s beau­ti­ful, though!

Mélange from Cal­i­co Cross­roads was the first piece I did that real­ly used a lot of dif­fer­ent stitch­es. I enjoyed it great­ly.

    I real­ly love the Ele­men­tal one. It’s one of my top 5 favorites of the pieces you’ve done. The oth­er one is the one with all the African glyphs.
