Octagon in a Square, Finished

Hi!  Here I am!  We are still in moving mode, but it'll be several weeks before we can move into our new house so I have a little bit of stitching time!  I can't start anything new because all of my stash is in storage, worry, worry.... 
Anyway, my stitching is all on WIPs and I have actually finished something!

Octagon in a Square is the latest of my Mad Miters craziness.
The last time you saw this, I think I had just started the center. The Octagon is done in Mad Miters and the surrounding areas are straight Bargello.  
This is not my most successful experiment!  But it's OK, we learn by doing, so they say!  The cable pattern I chose was difficult to work with in the Mad Miters part, and these are not MY colors.  It is supposed to be liberating (or something) to work outside your comfort zone, but this may have been TOO far out of mine!

I will try to post somewhat regularly now, but only once a week till we get settled.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!

I like it. Disturbance in the Force, that's what I call it! LOL

Hang in there with the move. It will all be well in the end.

Fascinating! I can't help wondering though, how it would look with the octagon outlined in the pink to give it a bit more definition.
I really want to do another Mad Mitres, but I have to finish a couple of pieces first. :)

And I like the piece too. Good to hear that your move is going ok. Keep posting when you can.
