I finally decided on which fabric I wanted to use for my borders on this Christmas BOM. Originally I thought the more muted red would go better with the red (DMC 221) that was in the stitchery. But I decided on the brighter red and am glad I did. The brightness seems to make the stitchery pop! Five of these will be bordered in red and 4 in green.....am looking forward to seeing the next month!
