It’s simple blockish letters/numbers that I made up as I went. I used one strand and did a back stitch of sorts.
I’m not sure you can see it but I ran a basting thread 5/8″ around outside the stitching. That’s where I will fold it over the foamboard and lace it on the back. It’s so hard to keep it straight while doing that and the basting threads will be my guide.
I’ve done all I can do til I decide on a frame. I had a plan but I think I want to do something else so I’ll order a frame.
I absolutely love it and am so thankful that the first piece I finished turned out to be something I love.
For the record, the finished size, with the border, will be 8-3/4″ x 14″.
