This is the placemat I bought yesterday at Ikea and I think I'll buy more next time because it looks so nice with the design embroidered.
I think I have to use a "less-ply" floss for this or maybe softer colors. I don't really know. But in my next project I think I'll be able to fix some mistakes I made here.
This next pic is a closer look of the design. I downloaded it from Floresita who I think I owe the "fever" I have now for embroidery because her blog is just adorable!!!
