Remember my little fit of embroidery? Well, it turns out the hard part is actually putting a backing on it. But I’m done.
As always, click for a bigger picture. I also took an overhead view for those who might want to see that
My mitred corners are less than perfect, but I am pretty impressed with how perfect that backing fabric is. I did take the embroidery with me when I went to the shop but I only rifled through the remnants bin so the choice was limited. It looks really nice and I think my mom will love it. Her table is teak and she is likely to put a white tablecloth under it (or maybe a sagey green one) if she was using it when she has guests for dinner. I think it will look even better against those kinds of colours. Maybe she can set a serving dish over one of the less perfect corners.
