Coffee Scrolls

Did my best to do at least something besides cross-stitching.
Coffee Scrolls table runner from Inspirations magazine Issue 56.
Whipped chain stitch swirls in DMC Cotton Broder Special No 16 in two colors on linen.
Colors are reversed on the sides.
That was easy. Finished on 19 August 2017.
(Today is the first day of rain after a month of sun and heat. And today I've finally ironed the thing for the "photo shoot". My luck!)

When it is very hot this is the only thing I can do.
Big happy finish of July is
