Finished Piece

You will want to add the year, your name, and the hours needed to complete the project. It will be unobtrusive if worked on one line directly at the hem.

Then it’s off to the cooking pot for boiling.

Afterwards the light brown of the scorching was gone and, with some rubbing, all the blue lines also disappeared.

After starching and intense ironing, my wreath turned out pretty. Unfortunately, such a big and white cloth is difficult to photograph, and I am not an expert; but one can get an impression of its beauty.

I started the project late. It was already 23 October when I got the finished design enabling me to begin. And I wanted to have it ready by the end of November so to be able to start sharing it with you at the beginning of December. I’m happy that I was able to finish it in time. Many hours lay in between – 118 in all! Some of these hours were spent considering and removing stitching that didn’t quite work, but most of the hours were pleasantly spent doing fun stitching. I am really pleased with the result.

The heaven with all its angels and stars,

the different stars,

the tall angel,


and sheep,

the wise men – all turned out to my full satisfaction.
