I do like it! The only stitch involved is the blanket stitch, which isn’t so difficult (except for the part about getting all the stitch lengths the same). The hardest thing for me is cutting out the parts! I haven’t taken the pattern off the black mat part because I still need to trim the scallops a bit. I’m not trimming the “pennies” any more because they will be too small to stitch if I do. I’ve decided they will look more primitive and authentic if they aren’t so perfectly round. So far I have three little pennies stitched to their big pennies, using two strands of DMC floss in color 422.
