This was quite a relief!
Obviously, it is not on par with the relief from hearing, "The growth is benign" or "The plane landed safely" but it is a relief.
After all, how many samplers are languishing, forlorn and alone, because the border didn't match? And how many hours has the stitcher spent, trying to find that one thread or stitch that is off?
Anyway, I was very happy that both borders on this cartouche met and matched, and that now I can color in the blanks.
Or I might do something else. I'm feeling particularly fickle at the moment, and there are many attractive projects begging for my attention.
