Now that I am waiting for the afghan fabby to arrive I have had time to get back on Peddler.
It is so dirty!!, it has spent months on the frame, I have had to move it about the house and we have decorated and it is filthy.
I have decided not to wash it. I have sponged it off, then carried on. I once washed a piece mid job and it never did look right..
i shall do a tepid wash first, then plunge in cold to make sure the colours are fast, then go for a hotter hand wash. Then I can block & dry it for framing..
Next Haed I shall be looking at a cloth to cover it. The threads will come back up I am sure and as I always frame to the edge and leave no boarder, I am not so worried about the ground fabric.
