TAST week 16 and Vintage Wallpaper

 Take a stitch Tuesday this week is Italian Knotted Border Stitch. In my stitch book it is called French Knotted Border Stitch - have you noticed how many different names there are for lots of stitches?
As usual I used DMC cotton perle5, but in a variegated colour, looks very pretty. The photo shows very clearly where I stitched in the wrong line ! need new glasses or can't count?

Does anyone remember wallpaper that you had to trim before hanging? A friend found some in a set of drawers she acquired. Glad we don't have to do that now. A great find I think tho.
