The final border


 
After many trials and lots of errors I realized the bottom motifs needed to be large to balance with big bird.  Smaller vines, vases, and florals were not working and I could not understand why.  Finally have something agreeable and all I need is a bottom band.  Nothing has worked so far, and I think for the same reason.  Needs a little heft for balance so I charted one and hope to finish this tomorrow.  Three inches wide and almost ten long.  Skinny mini.
 
Have a good week!

Marly, again you have done such a great job. It seems I always make bad choices when I make a change to a design. Yours looks great. Hope the new car is making you happy.

Your sampler is lovely. You are one fast stitcher.

I really like the flowers at the bottom. You could always take the border at the top and use it at the bottom.

It looks great, Marly! The row of flowers really works on the bottom.
Have a good day!

Yes, you're right - something with visual heft was needed at the bottom. I like the basket(?) urn(?) of flowers. Love the look of this!

Looks great so far, Marly--I think you are spot in to include larger motifs for balance :)
