and after much sweating, sorry, perspiring (I am a lady after all) I ended up with this:
Again, I still need to back and bind it but I love it!! This is what it looks like on the table. Please excuse the clutter in the background :)
And to prove that this is definitely an unseasonal tablecloth here's a shot of the table next to the air-cooler!
I actually tried to make a note of how I made this one so that if anybody actually fancied making one of their own I'd be able to point them in the right direction. So if you're interested just ask and I'll see what I can do, if not I'll just file the notes with the many others I have scribbled down over the last year :) Catch you again soon!
