I read them and decided I should have a nap! Not something I do very often but it is that kind of day. I came back to the instructions with fresher eyes but I still didn't get it. I searched for some other instructions but could not find any. I did find http://letslearnembroidery.blogspot.ca/2011/04/frilled-buttonhole-stitch.html and it was close enough that I got it.
I am not embarrassed to post my struggles with this stitch. It is helpful to know when others struggle with something. Plus I am not addicted to perfection. It is the learning process that I enjoy and I am glad that I persisted with it even though it isn't perfect.

http://pintangle.com/2014/09/23/take-a-stitch-tuesday-131-beaded-lock-stitch/ shares instructions for the Beaded Lock Stitch. I am a sucker for beads so I love this stitch. I used Petite Very Velvet thread by Rainbow Gallery. It is fairly thick thread and I was delightfully surprised how easy it was to stitch with it.

I am excited and pleased to be teaching at the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery next month. I will be teaching Introductory Crochet on October 26, 2014. It is going to be a really fun class. My classes are always fun, at least that is what my students say! Come join me for a fun afternoon. https://www.kwag.ca/en/programs/resources/kwag_communityflyer_fall2014.pdf
