Unfinished Embroidery Project

I am sure that many of you have those unfinished craft projects put away for a rainy day. I have decided that this year is that rainy day for me.

I pulled out the table cloth I had started years ago (back in 2008 I believe) and have slowly but surely working on getting it done. It is a lot of work, and there are times I want to bundle it back up and put it away, but this project will be completed.

Here are a few pictures of it.

I am working on the third corner of the cloth, just one more corner to go after this one is done. I seem to be slowing down a bit though.

Each corner has 2 bouquets, one a bit smaller than the other. Then there is a small bouquet in the center of each side.

Here is a picture of one of the finished corners.

This is a picture of one of the small bouquets on each side.

Now it wouldn't be too bad if I only had these to do, but in the center......
There is this large oval of even more flowers to embroider!!!

I hope to get the whole cloth done by the end of the month, this after a month of working on it already.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Very, VERY pretty!! I used to do a lot of embroidery when I was young...in my teens. I started a tablecloth and never finished it, lol. I bit off more than I could chew!

    I finished off a UFO too. I just took a picture of it tonight and hopefully tomorrow will get it onto my blog.

  2. This table cloth came from my Mother's stash of embroidery items. So this is another reason I want to stick with the project this time. I may even do another project that she started but did not finish.

  3. Ahhh...that means besides being beautiful it is also PRICELESS...

  4. I'm sure it will be beautiful and you'll be happy you stuck with it. Whenever I get tired of something, I put it aside to work on something else for a day or two and then I'm ready to tackle it again....just don't put it out of sight or mind.

  5. That looks lovely ... you'll be glad when it's finished.
    I understand about wanting to finish up your DM's stashes ...
