Some outer border resolution...


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!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  2. Your time and experimentation for the border design has produced a beautiful design. I too like the lacy holes in the swags. I would not have thought of that but it does give a lighter look and lets you focus on the clef and flowers
