beginnings...

My brain loves this!  
Calculating a border sets my design muse on its ear, 
too much fun...no way!

Some days are made for playing with thread and stitches.
Messing around with string art and fine thread is one of my favorites.
And a little dragonfly was born in the corner.

Coming up with a light coverage background
is next on the 'todo' list.

Happy little bug.

Art Deco feel, maybe.
Reminds me of a carved border around the top of an old building.
 Didn't know I was architectural, did you?

I take many pictures while stitching.
The camera sometimes shows me a totally different perspective
than what I'm seeing while focused on the stitches.
Sometimes this perspective is very cool, sometimes I'm reverse stitching.

  3. My hat is off to anyone who can figure out borders. I am totally flummoxed by working out the math.

    1. Nancy, the trick is to start in the center and wing the corners. Which is what I totally did with this, i.e. dragonfly motifs at the corners.

      It's taken too long to get to the stitching part, so I'm having fun!

  8. This border is so inspirational for me. I'd like to think more outside the box with background stitches.
