Houndstooth Runner

I finally got round to hemming the houndstooth weaving.

It was designed with the Edwardian bookcase in mind, and I was very pleased that, after hemming, it was the perfect length.

I didn't take the risk of machine hemming; the machine has been out of action for far too long. I hand-stitched two parallel rows of small stitches at each end, cut off the fringes, and wet blocked the fabric, before finishing with a double wonderweb  hem.
