Border 2 finally finished

I have finally finished the second border (except for a few hexagon flowers that need to be appliquéd down the sides). The fourth side went on easily, thank goodness. The top and bottom are sitting flat except for a big bumps in the middle. I think I will remove the background fabric pieces on the top and bottom and redo the templates then sew them back in. This will hopefully fix it without undoing the whole border.

 But not just yet.....

I have to say I'm really disappointed to that the second border is causing problems. So...time for a break. 

Think I'll get a few WISPS out for OPAM. I'm so excited to join my first blogging group.

This is one of them.

This is a Lizzie Kate Pattern from their flip series. There are twelve words in total and each word has a little brass charm to be stitched on after the cross stitching is complete.

I hope to have it hanging on my wall this Christmas. I love stitching with Weeks Dye Works and Sampler threads. The names they give to each skein to describe the colour instead of boring numbers like DMC is so cute. Names like'Louisiana Hot Sauce' and 'Old Red Paint' sound SO much more interesting.


  1. It's a shame Violet is giving you a headache, hope it improves after a break. Cute cross stitch.

  2. The quilt is going together beautifully, just needs a bit of attention to the lumpy bits ( a bit like me!). You know I adore that cross stitch! Can you get rid of your no-reply blogger please!

  3. Looks great Raelee, lucky we get to see the end result not hearing all your cussing :)
    Love your cross stitching too.
    I used to do a lot of it until I found stitcheries were quicker :)
