Same picture as before because the new photos don’t show the difference. Laundering with an ounce of bleach softened the colors just a little. I am much happier with it’s final appearance and deem it “useable” as is. It could be an excellent background and I’m contemplating adding an embroidery. My other choice would be braiding of some kind along the neck and hemlines. I haven’t decided and as my steam generator seems to be stuck in Minnesota, having set there for 3 days now, I know I won’t have to make the final decision for a few days, at least.
