I’m not sure I’m going to do a piece for the April TIF challenge – time is a little tight these days. I think I’m going to try to finish a cutwork tablecloth that has been hanging around for years – at least 7 or 8 years, I think.
As a first step, I carefully washed and ironed the tablecloth. It is about 4 feet square. Here’s what it looks like:
There were a few spots on it (e.g. I had left a needle in the cloth, and there’s a mark. Shame on me.)
For some reason – I can’t remember why – the only part I hadn’t cut yet is the little bit at the bottom left corner:
yes, just that little bit that looks like a tail on the corner – maybe 4 inches worth.
In addition to finish trimming the fabric, I want to go over the entire tablecloth to check for worn threads, or for sections that could use a bit of repair.
