Borderlines


I made a start on the Cross Stitcher SAL before going into work yesterday and managed to add a few more stitches in the evening but didn't quite make it all the way round before tiredness took over.  It took a lot of counting and recounting to make sure I had put the correct amount of stitches in.  I am hoping to finish it today before I collect Harlee-Jay.  Fingers crossed the border will match up.


This evening I must finish the gift stitch only a small amount left to do on this one.  I am also hoping to get the first stitches into the Joyful World for April.

That's a good effort for a new start..... I know that one, counting and recounting LOL. I would LOVE to be working on April, sadly still doing February!

An elderly stitcher a our group suggested to me when doing large one colour borders to do half stitches and put a full cross at every tenth stitch, it's easy to recount and then put the top stitch in all the way round when you know the borders matched up.

I don't like stitching this kind of borderline. It always takes forever and as you say it's a lot of recounting.
