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.
