Almost....

Yes, my white wrapping cloth is ALMOST finished!!!  A few minutes ago I put the last embroidery stitch into the body of it and now it's on to the border embellishment and the backing.  I'm excited to see it finished (not because I want it to end, but because I want to SEE it!!).  I have had soooooo much enjoyment out of the making of this cloth and can't wait to start the next one.  I won't mention the fact that I probably have enough white goodies to draw from to make at least a half a dozen more - no, I won't. 



Sorry about the pictures appearing to be blue but, trust me, they ARE white.  In the picture above you can see a lovely little embroidered flower section - they were done by my maternal grandmother, probably in the late 1950's.

How nice to have some of your grandmother's stitching on your white cloth! Something very special to treasure. Looking forward to seeing the completed piece.
