Vintage Family Tablecloth


Recently I was very fortunate to be on the receiving end of this beautiful 50 year old linen, embroidered, lace crochet tablecloth made by my Nanny (who patiently taught me how to crochet). 
My lovely Aunty sent it to me, and I am very thankful she did indeed. 
It will be well looked after here and enjoyed for many more years to come.
So many, many  hours of work have gone into this joyful piece of Art.
The delicate lace work all around the edge,
 Lovely embroidery that makes you smile.
Too good to use, but too beautiful to lock away.
 How special to have something handmade by a family member.
Thanks Aunty Jan.
