Back to basics

I worked on the basket weave around the border.  Basket weave is one of the basic stitches for us as it needs to be in a lot of pieces for tranquility or a place for the eye to rest.  In the case of the this pillow, it is not a resting place but the basis for the finisher to have a place to stitch.  I hope to finish the piece tomorrow.

The white border makes everything very elegant, Pat. I hope your niece likes this a lot!

She and I have discussed it a lot and she has seen it and likes it!
