Woo Hoo! ! ! ! I finished it


I started working on this about 5 years ago and I finished it today. I had to repair some of the antique crochet work and then I added a linen backing to give it some added strength then I had to stitch around 99 linen doilies. It is a beautiful antique Italian bedspread that my daughter gave to me when her dog tore it. I decided to repair it and give it back to her. I do hope that she will appreciate all the time and work that went into restoring it to a usable spread again. I sure do. It is so heavy and will fit a king size bed. I am so happy to be done with it. I has been sort of like an albatross hanging over me for so many years. The only pressure came for myself but I just felt the need to get it done. It was something that I wanted to do for her.
Anyway, it is done and on its way to San Antonio.
I didn't get all the bears for my Granddaughters done but they will come a little later. I am only one person and there are 11 grandchildren. Whew!
Well, I am just going to try and catch my breathe and get ready for a great new year. but for now I am going to bed. Nighty nite my friends.

I hope she appreciates the long hours and effort. It's really pretty. What dog ruined it? Not Judge? He was way more than 5 years ago wasn't he?

Yes Susan, it was Judge. She gave it to me but I decided to repair it and put the backing on it and give it back to her. He tore it when they lived in San Diego.
