I get to do it again...

another three times before I'm finished. That's the reality facing me when I look at my tablecloth project. Viewed a bit at a time, I can be quite pleased with what I've accomplished.


Here's one quarter of the whole design embroidered.


Now here's what I've finished in relation to what I still need to embroider.


It's not so much the fact that I have more to stitch, as much as it is that the next three sections must match how I've done the first, that I'm finding a little daunting. I'll need to pay close attention to make all the sections match up and to prevent running out of the colours I have on hand. That shouldn't be too hard to do, should it? I guess there's one way to find out! This may be the first and the last tablecloth I embroider. ;o)

  1. Katherine, it is beautiful! G. and I are just learning embroidering together at the moment and it is funny how when you start to learn something you realize the amazing skill and talent involved in work like that. So hats off to you...sewing Diva!
