Embroidery 101 Top Finished! and 200 Posts!

Well, it looks like today's post is number 200! I also passed 10,000 hits this week so I had two bloggy milestones! I would do a giveaway for them, but I'm about to have one with the Ghastlie Blog Hop so I'll just call it an all in one!

I finished my top for Embroidery 101, though I am still debating adding a darker colored border to help ground it a bit. It's a bit more 'light and airy' than I normally make.
Or I may just use a darker binding and call it done. It is approximately 60x60 as is. I love how the embroidery turned out. I'm still contemplating how I want to quilt it. I did 3" sashing and used my scraps to make mini blocks in each of the corners.
Hope you're having a nice weekend!

I love it!! I think a border would be nice, but it does look good the way it is! Congrats on finishing that awesome top!

It's good to make something in colors that you don't usually use. I like it. If it were mine, I'd add another border. I like to add borders. Congrats on the 200 and 10000.

Woo hoo! It's wonderful to see it finished. :) I think a border would look great (I am also thinking I will add one), but maybe just a darker colored binding would do the trick. Congrats!
