I added two extra panels to the sides and enclosed it all at the top and bottom with extra panels also. This is a photo of the border I added.
Since I added the extra panels around I only added three border rounds instead of the five called for in the pattern as written. I am glad it is done, it was fun but now this is the last you will hear about this project. I am on to other things now. This photo has no border added to it yet.
