From Long Island

My LI tea towel is ready for some hand sewing today...just in time for the big blizzard headed our way.   I want to do some embroidery to highlight my favorite images.  The sailboat reminds me of our boating days (not the Clipper ship, however), and the shorebirds and shells of our beach walks, and the Montauk lighthouse is really The End!  Not quite sure how to finish this piece.  The outer border could be a binding or it could be a facing???

Love your shell idea, Chris! Why didn't I think of that?
