|I have thoroughly wet the woollen embroidery threads and backing linen|

This is it folks. I have to wait about three days now for it to dry out and it must be kept flat like this. It looks good at the moment but it was a bit scary at times when I removed it from the frame because some of the flowers were so heavily stitched that the linen puckered up around them, but it seems to have flattened out perfectly, phew! I am glad I am not making a full set of 17th century bed hangings though; imagine trying to block them out.......
