Part 5: Restoring damaged crochet tablecloth

Restored tablecloth
Here is the restored tablecloth.  Doesn't it look lovely on my 1930's dinning table!  I'm very proud of all my efforts.  All up it took approximately 7-8 hours to restore, this includes the time taken to create mock up motifs to understand how they are contracted and joined together.


The above photo shows one of the restored sections.  The motif in the middle is the one I inserted,  you can't hardly tell which is the new one!

So there you have it, one thread crocheted tablecloth restored to its former glory.  My work here is now done.
