I really really want to stress that this isn't my work, but I just had to share this amazing table cloth that a friend of mine found in a charity shop, she can't remember exactly what she paid, but she knows it wouldn't have been more than an dollar or two.

I think that you will agree that who ever did this amazing piece of work is a very skilled and patient person. The cross stitch is so delicate and the blue lines - sorry I don't know what this technique is called - are just beautiful.

Our plan is to delicately quilt it and make it into a wall hanging, so it can be enjoyed in all it's glory.

Qudos to the person who made this, I can only wish that one day I could consider my work this accomplished.

 I have some linens that are similar, that my grandmother imported from China in the 50s/60s.  As nice as those are, they could also be from a different time or place...??

I think they are beautiful, and anyone who has ever done cross-stitch or embroidery would know the time and effort that went into those pieces.

I think your friend is very lucky to get those pieces at such a great price!

What a wonderful thrift store find. So much work must have gone into creating that. I think sharing it as a wall hanging will be beautiful!
