Yes, I lost my trial cloth on the lace border stitch and had to start another. I’m trusting it will show up soon. I think it’s right here in my house. And probably it’s right under my nose and not some place else which will be exasperating.
I hastily started stitching some borders on another cloth. I really didn’t have the heart to redo some of the layering and the curves over again. Therefore these experiments are sort of unexpected surprises to me. Although I certainly wasn’t too happy with myself when I started out the stitching won me over. And I learned a little more about working with this stitch, always a good thing.
I love the idea of this diamond one. I probably haven’t perfected it yet because I didn’t start out with the whole idea in my mind. Almost all my experiments were that way today, I started out with little to nothing in mind and added whatever I wished. The border below has the most additions. I kept trying this and that to dress it up.
This one looks like “off grid” work but it is actually counted except for the French knots.
