I love visiting blogs as you just never know what wonderful ideas you will find and not long ago I was visiting Laura Perin's blog and she was talking about adding borders to your projects and I thought it was a wonderful idea as it really makes the project look more finished so when I finished stitching this project, I immediately thought of Laura and her blogging about borders and wanted to add one before I finish this as a bookmark. I only needed a little border so I did a row all around with one strand of black DMC using the backstitch. It really does make a difference, doesn't it? I will leave a little bit of canvas all around before I turn the fabric under and attach to some fabric for the back side, so I now need to go hunting for the fabric in my boxes :-(
Be right back!
