The Clever Use of Thread Weight

Anne of ABS Designs has created an original design as a gift for friends.  As she stitches, she is using two different stitches and two weights of threads in the same color to differentiate the border from the center of the design.   I think this is very clever!

Here's the finished design.

The next time you need a subtle border, remember Anne's idea.
