Winter Logs Border

June 19, 2021

It has taken many hours to get as far as I have with the border. However, it is very comfortable stitching. The stitch is Milanese. It turns out to be very easy to compensate, and there is a lot of compensation.

As I got going on the border I began to think I didn’t have enough thread. I was right I am on my last length (3 ply). Returning from a visit with my son in Phoenix yesterday I popped into The West, my LNS, in Tucson and bought some more. I had just purchased all the threads for this project a month or so ago and I was sure they would still have the right dye lot. They did !!!

Here is where I am now. I hope to have the border done by the end of the week.
