    Just finished the table cloth/quilt for my daughter's family to take camping. The other is a new project using a small embroidery piece I made years ago and never used as a table cover.

    Thanks everyone. :-)

    Embroidery is my first love. I learned at my grandmother's knee (she was from Sweden) when I was quite young. I have embroidered many table cloths, and table runners for myself and as gifts.

    It is hard to find patterns today... everyone seems to like cross stitch. I like the intricate stitches required for embroidery.

    If anyone has a recommendation for places to find embroidery patterns, please let me know.
