It is supposed to be good for curves... You just need to slant the foundation stitches in the right direction! There are five more weeks plus three stitches to ake up for the three weeks off she gave for people to catch up. BUT... She's planning on a variant of this challenge for 2013 with different stitches so it could go on a while...

Where did my message go?????

I wrote that this does look nice and not too difficult. It should go around curves easily if you make sure that all the stitches are the same length. How many more stitches do you have in this course to do?

The Portuguese Border Stitch. Kind of fun to do, and fast. I have to watch my tension, and play with curves and the like, but I think this one will become one of my preferred seam treatments! I used two kinds of threads in this piece... #5 perle in a variegated blue and Carrie's Creations (Crazy Dreams).
