Third side done

I skipped back over to the outside border and completed the left hand side using the Threadworx overdyed. This completes the third side of the outside border and only the top left one to go! Jane mentioned that the center background looks lacy and in person it really does. Since it is a single strand of the Perle Cotton, it creates a very nice background worked in the T stitch. Remember I changed this stitch from the single running cross as I wanted the heavier pattern to surround the Iris . I like the way it looks against the lighter weight outside border too! This one will be done before the weekend is!

I love that Threadworx, such a great color for this project! I'm enjoying living vicariously with your T-stitch background.
