You bet it's worth finishing!  I was drawn to your embroidery.  Keep up your work.  It's worthwhile.

That's the type of thing you can tell your grandkids or relatives (when they're old enough to appreciate it) how long it took you to hand make and then pass it on as a family heirloom. 

I would gladly use that for special family occasions, it's gorgeous!

beautiful!
i'm inclined to say that even if you didn't fill everything in, it'd still be stunning. actually, probably more so. it'd be more "artsy". you know, pockets of information that tell you what you need to know and then just basic guidelines that let you know what's there and let you fill it in with your imagination... at least that's what they tell us in art school. so if you just filled in a few pansies and let the rest be outlines, it would make for a nice push/pull of information and an intriguing figure/ground relationship Cheesy
ok, enough with my b.s. artbabble, i love your tablecloth and think it rocks hard all night long.

So, sooo beautiful. I'm totally inspired to learn embroidery. Would you happen to know of any websites or books that teach the basics?

Thank you so much. I hope you do learn, and enjoy every minute of it. I'm not sure about any good books, I learned from my mother and grandmother. My library has a few books on needlecrafting, which usually have an embroidery section, so that might be a good place to start. Books from the sixties and seventies will have more info.

I own a copy of the DMC Encyclopedia of Needlework.  I recommend it for anyone who intends to keep needlework as a lifelong hobby.

 As for sites, there are some good stitch tutorials. I'm not sure about the rules for liking at the moment, so I'll just advise. Type in " how to hand embroider' into the search engine, and it should bring up som god ones, such as Sharon B's.

Also, one of the members here, TreeCactus, has a great tutorial site with videos. Good luck!
