TAST 2012 - Week 47, Portuguese Border Stitch

The stitch for this week's challenge is Portuguese Border Stitch.  Though it looks complicated , it is very simple to work with. I have never tried this before.  Learned through Sharon's tutorial and worked it as a neckline for the back of my blouse and the border for the sleeves.  It suits well for borders and neckline.  It works well for curves too.  I have worked the stitch with pearl cotton 8 and it gives a grand appearence to the blouse now.  Happy with the outcome.  How do you feel?

Now the border in the sleeves.

Tutorial for the stitch is available here.

Feel free to drop in your comments.

Happy Embroidering.


I would like to hear from you as it boosts me up a lot.
