That looks weird … I LIKE weird – can’t wait to have a fiddle … but I will have to wait until the weekend – I plan to spend the next 2 or 3 days sorting out the junk explosion that is supposed to be my sewing room, then I am going on a quilty retreat on the weekend – where I plan to catch up on this and the previous 3 stitches I have not done yet, and do more with a few of the stitches that I hardly did anything with and/or want to do more … but last night I finally did get around to blogging all the stitches I had not caught up with blogging about … and there are quite a few of those stitches I want to do more with, so I guess I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy at the retreat on the weekend 😉
disorganised in Dunlop (a suburb of Canberra, Australia).
I’m having trouble with this stitch.
First you do a scroll, go up through the bar and down on the left and do a twisted chain.
Next you go through the scroll stitch and do a second twisted chain
I get that far … but I’m stuck.
The last photograph is confusing … is that up-side-down in relation to the previous stitch?
When I do the next stitch, I’ve gone to the upper right to do the next scroll stitch and end up with a slanted stitch.
I’ll post a photo on my blog. You will need to scroll down past my trip. I’m also posting #40.
Vivian – I just got a fatal error message on your blog so I can’t see what you are doing but the last image ie the finnished row is turned on its side to show the row.
The second last image which may be the one you are talking about is not up side down
You work from top to bottom when you go to the upper right you take the thread through the scroll then move down to make another twisted chain
I hope this helps. I must admit that I feel inadequate answering because your blog is down I will check later in the day to see if it is fixed –
Week 41 is done but I am not sure if it is correct-well I think the green one is.
Thanks for all your hard work getting this ready each week I am going to miss it when it is all over.
Hi – I’m still having problems figuring out this stitch. When you say “When moving to the right hand side don’t forget to pass the needle under the bar formed as it is necessary to form the knot” which bar am I going under – the bar formed by the last stitch (on an angle) or the bar formed by making the next scroll stitch?
Hi Sharon, I’m having a bit of a problem with understanding this stitch probably because I can’t seem to concentrate on it. I’m having cataract surgery on Oct. 17th and am getting things ready for that. This will put me a little behind as I won’t be able to stitch or use the computer for at least four days. I may get some more work on the stitch between now and the 17th …. otherwise will wait and work on weeks 41 and 42 together. Nothing new posted on my blog http://normasneedlez.blogspot.com
My weeks 40 & 41 are up on my blog. I couldn’t quite get the hang of the Lace Border Stitch though, but quite like what I ended up with. Who knows, maybe I’ve invented something new!

I’ve figured it out. What was misleading me was that the beginning stitch moves from left to right, but the repeats of that stitch go the other way, right to left. So the bar the first stitch makes has a scroll st. at the R end of it, and you pass the needle under and over it to make a twisted chain on the left. Then you pass the needle through the knot to the R of the bar, and do another twisted chain, on the R. Then, you make a second ‘bar’ stitch with a scroll st on the end across to the LEFT. You then pass the needle under the bar moving towards the R and do a tw. chain. Then you pass needle through knot at Left end of bar.
So where you were passing the needle under the bar and through a knot moving R when starting off, after that one time you are passing the needle under and through moving L.
If you can follow that you are very clear-headed!!!
