I am starting to gather quite a large pile of vintage tablecloths and materials.
Although I have a pattern for a smock dress, I am determined to perfect another design before grabbing the scissors and cutting into these treasures.
I picked up these beauties this afternoon at the local salvo'sSomeones nana put alot of work into crochet around the edges of these tablecloths
I am always so amazed when I come across such lovely vintage materials like these.
I discussed it with Finlay on the way out of the shop.
Wondering how they came to be here. Then realised I was sharing my joy of vintage with a 7 year old,she'll get it one day,right?
Maybe someones Nana passed away(think I was talking to myself at this stage) and they weren't appreciated by the recipient.
Or where they a gift that some just did not like. I wonder. Always wondering what lovely stories these tablecloths hold. Family Christmas lunches and Birthday gatherings
I also came across this vintage tea towel when going through my fabrics,and had to laugh,
Think I have to frame this one for the kitchen. Would be interested in knowing how old this is,what a classic
