Tischband Finished

For next time, I'll do one less round on the flowers like others have suggested.

 Oh boy.

It certainly flattened after ironing, but it's still a little wonky.

Tischband Almost Finished

On the last leaf and I've run out of thread! I literally only have the last 7 chains (two joins) to do and the shuttle is empty. I don't want to refill the shuttle just to finish the little bit left, so that means finger tatting. I'm ok with can be a bit of a pain if you have a  lot of thread though. Oh well.

I've seen that others have the same problem I'm going to have when I do the last two joins, in the the piece won't be laying flat. I'm hoping a hot steamy iron will take care of that.

I think I'm going to leave this piece at this size, starch it and have a little coaster. It's the perfect size for a coaster.
