I have had a great time using this stitch and I bet a lot of the other participants have enjoyed creating things, too, as I have seen so many stunning results. Click here to see for yourself.
I made a Mandala, a round disk:
Mainly Italian Border stitch, with either one or two wraps in the knot. Some Fly, Running and Straight stitches were also used. The material: Pale blue sheeting for the background, Anchor, Cosmo, Clara Wæver, DMC and Olympic (correction, Olympus) stranded floss, metallic quilting thread and a pinch of seed beads.
