ohh myyy gosh! that is amazing, as I was reading your discription, I was thinking ohh nooo it cant work....but that is amazing! Its beautiful, I also love the colour, and the patterns in the cloth
I too am a little short of the old money at the moment, but I am going to look for table clothes in the charity shops (I am in UK)
I have a drawer of ill fitting table clothes all hand embroided (inheirited from a old great aunt), might have to have a peek and see if I can do something with them
well done its beautiful  Grin

I am not a sheep, I dont follow....
AND please be aware, I am in England, so my spellings and sayings may seem a lil bit weird lol

That is absolutely beautiful and it looks great on you! Are you sure you're 48? You sure don't look like you could be any older than 37 or 38.
