the post, “Ditch Stitchin’”. That was a fun finish. I can only show a little as it really hasn’t been delivered,yet.
Sorry, I know the above photos are basically the same but I wanted to give a little feel for the borders. They are filled with significant phrases and names of people, places and things in this client’s friend’s life. I did the first stitching of the binding for her and she will do the finishing hand stitching. I straight stitched diagonally (one direction) through the main part and ditch stitched on the inside of the darker blue border and the outside of the narrow lighter green strip. The script is in the handwriting of the client ( I did a direct transfer from the layout she provided). That filled the border very nicely.
Now, on to the next project. It’s not Christmas yet!!!!!!….
