Hi Carolyn thanks for showing me the back of your mats . They almost look as good as the fronts . I wondered if the needle could actually sew right through the rope as it looks quite thick . You have inspired me to try some out now ,,will need to shop 1st for rope . Unfortunately we cannot get it in the pretty colors that you have but the designs on them make up for it,
Kind regards

These look terrific. Love the purple rope/yarn. It looks softer than the white cotton rope I can find locally. May I ask what brand it is? Thanks.

Hi Carolyn your rope mats look great . I am interested in what the back of them looks like after embroidering , is it neat and tidy .? Cant seem to get my head around how it looks finished with the thickness of the rope does the stitching go right through . All I have seen on internet so far only show the fronts .So far I have only made rope bowls they turned out lovely . You are a busy lady keep up the good work and careful on those stairs ,,, we have stairs and they are not people friendly when you get older ( I am 80 this year)

i put them up for you to see the backs ok

Not sure why I can not see everyone's larger pictures of projects. I can only see the small ones. This has been going on for some time again now. I know they look great though, they always do. Smart to move things to keep an eye or listen for John. I know it is hard going from one place to another in case you forgot something you need. Doing stairs becomes a lot of workout. Keep up your strength.
