That's so pretty. What's the name of the letters you used? I like the sunflowers.
The letters are modified from the letters on pg 21 of the book "a Big Collection of Alphabets in Cross Stitch". I'm pretty sure I got it at Joann's. There were supposed to be beehives and tons more bees, so I changed that. And I might have moved the placement of a few of the flowers too.
all such a beautifully coordinated package with the background fabric and the frame.
Sewing a border on to a cross stitch piece is easy peasy! I just used my regular machine, and a regular needle. cut 4 strips of fabric. Sew one on each side, then sew the top and bottom (including those side pieces you just added), just like for a quilt. I saw it in a fancy-pants cross stitch store and thought if they can do it so can I!
