Not as easy as it looks

Working this border is not as simple as it seems. I tended to make the stitches on the flowers rather small and uptight. But that is not an option for the border. The stitches need to be pulled tightly enough to hold their shape, but not so tight as to distort the cloth.

There was rather more border left to do than I remembered. I still have three more sections to do. Each section takes about an hour-and-a-half to complete, so I still have some hours to put in.


  1. It is very, very pretty.

  2. You have more patience than I do! Embroidery is definitely not my best skill. You're doing a great job! Those flowers are gorgeous!

  3. It's going to be worth every minute! You're making such a beautiful cloth. Karen in OR
