Table Topper finish

I finished the stitching on this table topper the other day. It was to be my annual contribution for the fashion show raffle. This year's fashion show was to be held next weekend, and was sponsored by the Frauengruppe. Unfortunately, they cancelled the event, and I have an extra table topper. It will not go to waste, I will use it as a gift or raffle prize for a future event.

The chart for this piece calls for extensive backstitching, but I don't think it really needs it, so I didn't do any of the backstitching. Here are some close-ups of the individual squares:

The corner motif has a cluster of three tulips and the small side squares are a single tulip each.

It's pretty - but I think it's funny that you spread it out on the kitchen floor to take a picture of. :-)

If I would have put it on the table, I would have had to climb up on the chair to take a picture. The carpet in the family room was too busy, and there wasn't enough light in the living room. Sigh.
