Tablecloths, a bedspread, and a quilt
Suzanne over at ColoradoLady hosts Vintage Thingie Thursday. Well it's still ThursdayI have an heirloom, a thrift store find, a yard sale steal, and an auction "no one else wanted it". My co-hosts today are Stitch a 4 month old tabby and Cowboy one of my 5 year old dachshunds. First is the heirloom. I have it. It is crotchet. It is a tablecloth. Probably 75 years old?? And the photo does not do it justice. That's all I know. Wish I had known who to ask before they were all gone!! The yard sale find is graciously shown by Stitch. The lady said it belonged to HER great-grandmother. I paid 5 bucks! It is a tablecloth. I like the edging/border on this one. I was told at the thrift store that this white one was a tablecloth. When I got it home and spread it out (the store was very dirty), I find that it is a bedspread. Why else would one short end not have the fringe that is around the other three? I still like it. Not sure it was the best buy but I can't make it for twenty dollars. Cowboy and my pearls I won over at ReadingRosie's is showing the quilt that my hubby found at the auction. It is stitched over another quilt using woolens from suits and such. The embroidery is a not so great herringbone. Primitive but I love it!
