Last stitching for 2011

I have finally finished the hardanger tablecloth I started some 4 years ago. I am usually a quick stitcher, but because of the size of the project, which left me with a lot of weaving, I could only stitch for around half an hour each time ....  it is difficult for me to hold fabric in hand, and there was a lot with this one !!  So half an hour at a time was enough for me before it became too painfull. This cloth measures 35 x 35 inches square and is ideal for my  crystal table in my little front room !

That's me finished with stitching for a few days ...... in the new year I have decided to start a Loopylou design called Flower Patch, which is a lovely design by one of my favourite designers ....   plus I also have some designing of my own to do for my stitchy group ...




....   and this is the project I will be starting on Sunday ...

Your tablecloth is just beautiful, Val. I've never tried a piece that large, yet.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin'

Lovely Val. Great job on the table cloth, and grats to you on finally finishing it. I have that same problem when I stitch anything in hand, so kudos to you!
