I started doing my happy dance yesterday morning..no it was Saturday night. But the real happy dance was yesterday afternoon after getting the thread eater blocked. I was still doing the happy dance this morning..and then...I put the thread eater on my table..I think it is too big!!! I guess it is a matter of taste, but I don't like my tablecloths hitting on my chairs..and my hubby will be moving it up and wrinkling it up everytime he sits down...not to mention my dog walking against it and leaving a trail of doggy hair..dang...what do you think? Should it be shorter? oh my my..happy dance is slowing down. Anyway for those of you who are going to ask for the pattern..it is a Japanese diagram pattern..no I don't read Japanese, but the diagram is pretty universal. I used a 8 hook and #10 thread..and about 26 balls of thread. Good thing I am my own supplier..and had lots of time...pics of the book will follow...being as I can't write Japanese either. The tablecloth is in ecru..all same dye lot!!! Nice!! I even left off the last 20 rows of the pattern..dang!!! I hate to say it, but this may end up in my shop. Darn! I think it is really close to 72" maybe more..hold on I will go measure it with hubby's tape measure..ok from tip to tip across it is about 84 inches.....dang!!!!
