4th CLOTH






This is the 4th. cloth I am doing from the first class with Karen. It is going to be the bottom of either a 3 or 4 long piece depending on how much room I have to hang it in a bedroom when I get home. I have decided to make a book with all the samples from the Extending Embellishing class I am doing now plus some small pieces from the first one.

It is put together and some pieces just sitting there not attached. Actually last night I sat and basted all the areas down to the under cloth which is the top of the lace piece. It must have been a runner as both ends were in the bag of linens I bought recently. This end had a good 12 inches of nice linen attached so was perfect for the last cloth.

In the first pic I had laid a doily down but after looking at the pics I did not like it so took it off and found a smaller one that I soaked in Oxy and it is nice and white this morning. I think the smaller white one will be better.

You have really done some beautiful work in this class. I look forward to seeing them all put together and hanging.

I'm thinking of taking this class Freda. And the more I see your work...the more I want to take it. I love the idea of using it as window coverings...I just might need to do that...

I think you and everyone else who is doing this incredible whitework are the most amazingly patient and skilful needleworkers! I would go nuts - my hands and eyes would rebel against such fine work!
