Table Cloth

This is one of the embroidery projects that
I inherited from Don's mother's estate. It is a very nice table cloth that was mostly finished.

It has several different flowers on it. I did one of the yellow flowers, part of the center squares and some of the black and green leaves.

I did all of the red flowers, which were the largest ones on the table cloth.

I washed it on the gentle cycle and dried it on the gentle cycle and put it on my dining room table. It fits perfectly with one leaf in the table.
Now on to the next project, which is a embroidered picture of a vase with some flowers in it. I will take some pictures of it and post them on the hobby page as I work on it.
I have several embroidered projects to do. Some are partly finished and some are brand new. I guess I will be busy for the next winter.
If you have never tried embroidery, now is the time to. It can be very rewarding and relaxing. I think of it as coloring with thread or yarn, what ever the project calls for.


  1. What a lovely tablecloth. I'm so glad you were able to complete it. You really did a fabulous job. I am new to your blog and have really enjoyed the time I spent here. I'll be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

    1. Thank you Mary. I really do enjoy embroidery work. It is something I can do in the evening while watching TV, course I don't get much watching done, more like listening. LOL.
