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.

They’re both very beautiful 🙂
