With the Reticello pattern finished a long time ago, I finally found a nice border to embellish this work. I had no time to embroider it completely but I hope to finish it for next week and be able to present it to you in the last article of the year.
Here are the instructions
I used “Special à broder” DMC thread to make this border.
Pulling the threads
Draw 1 thread, leave 4, draw another, leave 8, draw 1, leave 4 and finish by pulling a last one.
For the edge of the pincushion, I pulled the threads as follows
Draw 1 thread, leave 3, draw another, leave 10, draw 1, leave 3 and finish by pulling one. Indeed, the four sided stitch of the main embroidery is embroidered on 3 threads.
Embroidering the border
Pull the thread through the four-sided stitch on the back of the work to the next set of threads. Now wrap the cotton up to half the bundle.
