Two days in a row on hand embroidery patterns! Hope you don’t mind. This one is a leafy border, stylized and a little formal. There are lots of possibilities with this pattern – it could even make a good pattern for hand-quilting the border of a quilt.
Whenever I see an embroidery pattern like this, the first thing I think of is guest towels or pillow cases or something similar. White on white, or even a subtle color (green?) would look good.
Another thought just occured to me: what about the bottom edge of a skirt? And then that opens up a lot of possibilities – dressy or casual!
[When playing with patterns, it’s fun thinking of hundreds of different ways they can be used. But I seem to have a problem finding time just to try one of those hundreds of ways…..!!!]

On another note altogether, I have an update on bullion knots with Gilt Sylke Twist coming up. That is, if it works out well! Even if it doesn’t, I suppose you could learn from my mistakes!
