This is my latest counted cross-stitch project. It has been slightly modified from the instructions. Why? See the red outline border? That was supposed to be corded and then couched. I could not get the thread provided to make the cord to cooperate. I tried for nearly half an hour and finally gave up and decided to do simple backstitch. I was not really looking forward to trying to couch the cord, either. Just read thread like the black and gold borders proved to be a challenge. The red backstitch turned out well, in my opinion, so I am satisfied with it.
