The Last Stitch

At last, I hear you say. I guess I had to decide what I was going to do with my gran's tablecloth before I could get around to finishing it. I'm going to give it to my niece, so that she has something that comes down from her dad's family. My brother is coming to visit soon, so that gave me the deadline to finish sewing the tatted edging on. My daughter has a magnificent tablecloth in linen and Spanish lace that my gran embroidered. I did check with her that she was happy for this one to go to Lizzie.

Many thanks to the folk of Tatland for their help, advice and encouragement in completing this project, especially Sharon D, who sent me the thread I needed to finish tatting the edging.
