I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
I found this gorgeously embroidered table cloth at a thrift store for three dollars! It fits our large antique table very well. It had a couple of small stains that I was able to lighten to near invisibility. Someone put many hours of cross stitching into it. I always look at the textiles when thrifting and am a sucker for fine work at a good price, as long as there are no nasty stains or tears. Even damaged textiles can be used for gift bags or other crafts if the design is beautiful enough and the price is right.
