Another find!

I found this at the op shop... It had only the leaves done so I intended to pull it apart and redo it all but I changed my mind and left the leaves the way they were and did the rest and then crocheted around the edge. I do embroider now and again but as far as the edging goes it's pretty simple, I don't like using fine cotton, I can't feel where it is, and I've never used a size '40' before and probably won't again but I am satisfied with it over all. Needs a wash though but very carefully I think. Should I wash it by hand do you think??
