In a perfect world, embroidering a large tablecloth would probably look like this (notice the serene smile on her face...). In the real world ... argghll... I keep having problems with managing a piece of fabric of 110 *300 cm. That's why I still haven't done more embroidery on my linen tablecloth... I hope that one day, I''ll have the perfect frame so I can move on!
ps: the flower border she's embroidering looks very cute!
