Oh, this is lovely! Why can't I master this? It eludes me every time I try. I want to make work like this girl, yours reminds me of it a bit.

Thank all for your kind comments.  It is very encouraging.
Craftylittlemonkey, there are many tutorials online where you can learn from.  YouTube has great tutorials for peyote stitch.
