Record Time Edging

I even surprised myself by how quickly I finished this!  And that includes at least 6-8 times where I got it wrong (it was getting ridiculous), had to cut and re-start.  For some strange reason, I kept forgetting to do the bottom large rings in pairs!  I don't know, I think I had a mental block about it.  So in spite of that, this edging did work up pretty fast.

As well as adding blue to the spray, I decided to do a yellow pin stitch around the edge of the handkerchief before attaching the lace.  I thought it would pull it all together more.

Yep, I'm happy with that.

Best wishes,

  10. This looks so pretty !
    I do have a question, though. What is "pin stitch"? I tried viewing a close-up, but can't really tell. Part of it looks like an open blanket stitch.

  11. Pin-stitching can be done by hand or by machine and it's where you go through the same holes a couple times and tighten your thread a bit so that it makes a nice row of littles decorative holes around the edge of your fabric.

    1. Thank you :-)
      Your stitches are Perfect !!!

  12. It gorgeous, do you mind me asking what pattern it is?
