Well, here it is. I added an initial “M” to the center of the piece. Whether it was that, or whether it was simply washing and ironing the fabric, it didn’t end up as bad as I’d feared.
The initial is upright, not on a slant. I used waste canvas to do the initial, and a double strand of perl cotton to make the letter stand out a bit.
This was one of those things to work on while watching mindless TV on a very cold night.
