I found this hand embroidered tablecloth set (yes it came with the napkins!) at a
community yard sale at one of the local library's parking lot in May 2009.
Since then I haven't gotten such a deal in vintage linens.
I posted about this great find on my "old" blog ...
anyone remember how much I payed for it???
One of the pictures in this collage has the tag... are you able to read it?
Ok.. I will tell you ....
I found this treasure for the amazing prize of $4.00!!!!!!
Can you believe it!!!????!!!!
I still can't ... :-). I didn't even bargain for it, wouldn't dare to.
These pictures in the collage were the ones I took that very day
when I found it... couldn't wait to iron it to take pictures :-).
These two pictures are from the back of some of the embroidered
motives... that's what I call tidy stitching!
The embroiderer put sooo much care on this piece... she/he
even used different embroidery techniques.
For example the bow below is embroidered in shadow work.
picture below shows.
I've used it once. I don't want it to get permanently soiled since
I found it in excellent condition.
Which great finds have you stumble upon?
PS (This upcoming weekend I plan to be busy stitching away on
my WIP's. I'll "see" you with some progress pictures next week!
Enjoy the rest of the week and have a great weekend!)
