Border for the January Ted

8th Jan 2017

Quite a few stitchers have suggested that I add a border for the Teds. A good idea, especially if you are going to stitch them all as a sampler or for a quilt. It's just a basic blackwork pattern, using Algerian eyes and linking them with simple back stitches. Both borders are entirely optional. Please note that if the blackwork  border is used on a single Ted design, then the corners need two additional back stitches to complete it. Let me know how you get on and as usual, I would love to see the pictures of your stitched pieces.
