Daily Threads - Week 6
Well, at least the embroidery is done. The table runner will be finished (though maybe only a week or so before Christmas. :)
Here it is, in all it's glory.
And a close-up of some of the stitching for anyone, like me, who enjoys looking at that sort of thing.
This table runner was a embroidery kit I purchased last time I was in Sweden visiting family. It uses regular embroidery floss over an even weave fabric. Throughout the entire runner there are only two stitches used - stem stitch and satin stitch. The saying "God Jul" translates to Merry Christmas.
Doing one thread a day worked out wonderfully. I started the embroidery on this in January and even though it's only April - it's done! Now I get the fun of figuring out what the next project will be.
I hope everyone else is having a wonderful week with a chance to play with their projects too.
