I used cotton thread on these designs, it is almost 8x14 then I cut rather close but managed ruffle but it is against my green border. So will probably try this again.

I agree. Don't throw it away because it is too pretty. It is easily fixable.

I'd just cover it up Jan with either as Anita has suggested ric-rac or even a nice piping cord. Love Chris

Looks nice and still so usable. Maybe run a green or red ric-rac around the edge to cover up the green border.

Thanks Anita. I looked in my ric rac spot with that thought in mind last night and did not have what I would like so it can set for few days till I get out and see what I can come up with.

Why don't you move the ruffle in a little so the green doesn't show and it will look like you planned it like that?

Good advise, I hate tearing apart lol. it stitched fast enough so will just try again and be more careful with my paying attention to what I am doing next round.
