Italian Border Stitch
I've sort of dumped this stitch on the block and don't really know where I'm going to go next except perhaps to add a few beads. I think the stitching should be extended onto the top ribbon, but for some reason I didn't want to do that. Unhappy with the result and it's certainly not elegant.
This is Italian Border stitched singly, but with a few more wraps to make the knot more procounced. I like this treatment as it could so easily be enhanced. Again perle 5 was used.
