Not very difficult to repair I thought, I just needed to cut off about 30cm from the damaged end and redo some of the white and orange pattern which was all cross stitches -- fine.
BUT .........Oh, one side had more rows than the other ! -- well, another row can be added, easy peasy...........but wait a minute ........ if I add an extra row, the corner pattern will be off centre ......errr no, must be off centre now ............ yes it is -- Oh well, I´ll take out the corner patterns.
AND the crochet edging is a continuation of the blanket stitched hem, so if I cut away fabric, it will all have to be redone, hem and crochet .......... oh.
Thank goodness my grandchildren came to stay the week and I didn´t have time to think anymore or the tablecloth repair would probably have been discarded. I found a blue perlé thread in my stash which would suffice instead of the original orange and got started.
Was all this repair work worth all the changes? Probably not.
Thank you for stopping by,
