The Italian knotted border stitch is the stitch Sharon B at http://pintangle.com is featuring this stitch this week. I have not done this stitch prior to this. I am grateful that it is a stitch that I can comprehend. The last couple of stitches in this series just looked too complicated to me so I didn't even bother trying them. I have no desire to overwhelmed by an embroidery stitch. That may sound like I do want to learn and improve in my stitching but that is not what I intend. I love learning new things.
