Vintage Embroidered Tablecloth

Here's my vintage embroidered tablecloth I got from my MIL. It was masterfully embroidered by her mother and if you remember, I showed a sneak peek of it here.

What makes me happy is that it is in mint condition without any holes or stains, and from what I've learned, it wasn't used a lot, I cannot imagine why!

After I took the pictures, I just sat and looked at it like mesmerized because it is really stunning. Right now I am very much into embroidered roses and actually working on a textile project involving roses I hope will turn right.

Have a lovely Friday evening!
