Edging begun

I decided to do Jane Eborall's Fandango edging to got around my tablecloth. Jane used size 80 thread for a hankerchief, but obviously I need something bolder to go on my tablecloth. I'm using ecru thread, which doesn't contrast greatly with the linen, because I want it to complement the embroidery rather than distract from it. I followed Jane's recommendation to do a corner soon after starting, to make it easier to work out how many repeats are required for each side. My tablecloth is square, like a handkerchief! It'll take me a while to complete this, but I have made a start.


  1. Oh, this is going to be so pretty. Karen in OR

  2. This is going to be a beautiful tablecloth!

    1. I hope so. I find myself now reluctant to finish it - how daft is that?
