OK, so I have finally made some sort of decision about the outer borders of "Baltimore Rhapsody." I will stitch one of the border strips, and see if it is truly what I want.
I will use F clefs in the corners, in a heart motif. THAT I will figure out after I get the four long strips done. I am really liking the swags with the holes in them. The G clefs are a little intense...and I have to make 24 of them...oy! Fortunately, I have 148 leftover purple circles, so I hopefully don't have to make more of them!
