You know I said this one was going to be the most complicated border?
I was not wrong. Aaargh! It’s exceptionally fiddly. Despite this, I’ve made quite respectable progress; doing embroidery on the sofa is still more comfortable than sitting at the sewing machine. Sigh…
In my mind, I call that top border ‘Crosses and Bells’.
The new border is called ‘Crowns and Keys’:
See what I mean? It’s just a tiny bit fiendish. The design isn’t quite as symmetrical as you expect, there’s a twist in it which led to quite a lot of cursing and unpicking. But you only do that once…
As always, it’s worth your while visiting the other SAL stitchers, even if they’re not posting progress today. Don’t forget about the difference in time zones; if you’re seeing me first, you may need to drop in to theirs a bit later to give them a chance to get their posts up.
