Carries Garden is an original design inspired by the beautiful array of lilac cornflowers that thrive in my friends garden. The design is rendered in full embroidery on Devonshire Art Cloth - Camel using satin stitch, coral stitch and French knots (with outlining for the gold color-way in stem stitch). Select from either the natural lilac color of the flower and silk thread to mimic the silky feel of the petals, or muted gold flowers with deep sage colored leaves rendered in pearl cotton. The head of the cornflower in both of the color-ways is filled with alternating gold, sage, and deep brown French knots, with sage green leaves worked in satin stitch, and deep brown thread worked in the coral stitch to create the stems. Finished size is 131/2" x 52" and includes a decorative hand-drawn hemstitch across the short ends of the scarf.

Design specifics: Motif measures 8" by 11"; distance between each motif is 24 inches; with a design drop of 14" (top of mofit to bottom of hem) and the finished table scarf measurements is 131/2" by 52".
Increasing the length of a table scarf is easy. Note the distance
between motifs; in this case 24 inches. If you need a longer table
scarf the additional length would be added in this area . For example,
if you would like the scarf for a 4-foot (48-inch) table with the
design dropping down the sides, then you would take your table
measurement (48 inches) and the design drop (14 inches times 2) add
these two together ( 76 inches), then subtract 76 inches from the
original scarf length of 52" , and arrive at a total additional length of 24 inches.
As a kit, the length can be increased for .50 cents per inch. In our
sample the additional costs would be $12.00 (24" x .50). As a
finished scarf the cost is $1 per inch, and would be an additional
$24.00 (24" x $1) in our example. Specify any additional length at
