Love the hollyhocks, I saw them in person three years ago, when I was in Europe. These plants are impressive, so tall and colourful..... I had to stitch them out! I have used a design (twice, mirrored) from the Traditional Homes and Gardens collection by Sue Box. My outline.

Thanks for your comment, Ursula. Sorry to disappoint you, but the fabric you see underneath isn't a runner but a tablecloth.

Very nice. Sue Box designs are lovely pity they don't seem to do any new ones. Just advertise the ones that have been available for ages.

This brought back a memory from when I was very young. There was a row of Hollyhocks along the path to the outhouse. I had not thought about that for years. LOL

The patchwork cloth is a printed fabric I bought sometime ago, I sewed the four sides and it became a tablecloth :)

Thank you, Martine. I have stitched the design out on felt to get a table mat, that's why I have placed the finished project on a tablecloth, with a cup beside it, but when I placed the cup onto it, I realised that I liked it better as a doily than a table mat. So you are right to call it a doily :)
