The border treatment has now changed from the ideas I was considering and shown in the last post. Though I liked the spider webby look using the perle cotton, it seemed a little messy and incomplete. Fortunately, another Fiber Junkies meeting was right around the corner, so I brought all these ideas and asked for an opinion from my fellow Junkies. We all agreed I needed to scrap the notion of using contrasting thread as an accent. So instead, I did some simple stitching using 1 strand of pale green DMC embroidery floss.
