Tablecloth

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.
