Moi Lovely Corner Table Cloth

The Lovely Corner tablecloth did rather well from its first wash. I added the last row of single crochet stitch before the wash. I think there was a wee wee bit of shrinkage but gravity did its part! And the wine stain is no where to be seen.

Hi Reen, Tks so much for dropping by my blog. I did the first 4 or 5 rounds early 2006 (cos I only need it for 2nd Dec) and then suddenly Dec was fast approving! Murphy's Law lah - so second 2 weeks of Nov, I was like crocheting the minute I open my eyes in the morning (before b/f and work) and immediately after dinner and ending 2am! But happy to announced it arrived in Melaka 2 days before 2nd Dec! and DH loved it!

'approching' is correct word!

Reen said...

oh, the person who received it must be a very lucky & happy person.

Ooops by the way, can i know wherebout is tis shops in Mca that sell dmc at rm1/-. is it a craft shop or a shop that sells 'barang2 kawin'.

Emily said...

Oh the tablecloth is for my Melaka condo, the occasion was my DH's eldest son's wedding.

The shop selling the DMC at RM1 is a shop that sells 'barang2 kawin' in Merlimau towncentre, DH's kampong en route to Muar and Jasin. I normally drop by the shop if we get to go back to the ancestral home. There is another shop near Tanjong Kling but this shop do not sell DMC x-stitch thread but stocks Minlon yarn and threads.
