Labour of love

P1000391



Last week I found the most spectacular hand embroidered table cloth at the op shop.




P1000395



It is the perfect size for our kitchen table , about 6' x4'.
I can't show you the whole cloth because it is too dull in my kitchen at the moment - yes, it is raining again, although we have had enough wind and sunny patches to get this cloth almost dry.

The embroidery thread appears to be a 4 ply cotton and it is an all over design with garlands of flowers.

The only fault with the cloth is a small match head size hole, no stains at all.



P1000386



The colours are bright and vibrant.



P1000385



The entire cloth has blanket stitch all round the edge.

It is truly someone's labour of love.
