This is what I am working on now. My daughter gave this to me many years ago after her dog accidently tore some of it when he jumped up on the bed. It didn't have any backing at that time and she decided to give it to me as she didn't have the time or willingness to do the necessary repairs. I was excited to get it and started the repair work. Well, I repaired the torn crocheted area and then attached a backing of a biege linen and began stitching around all of the linen doillies that are connected by crochet work to reinforce the backing to the spread. It's beautiful and but it is taking me forever to get around all 99 doillies. I am going to give it back to her when I get it done. Its was going to be a surprise but I told her about it this year so she is really looking forward to it. I wish there was a faster way of stitching around all the doillies but hand stitching seems to be the only way.
Yep, I have been working on this for a long time. I hope to finish it this year. Between working on gourds and cross stitch this get squeezed in now and then. Hate working on it for too long as then it gets tedious. Do you know what I mean?
