Nigel is holding a table top sale at the church this morning so I have been busy this week going through cupboards and drawers sorting out items, which we no longer use or just don't need anymore.
I started to sorting out my table cloths and came across this particular one that I bought about 15 years ago whilst living in Paignton. The tablecloth is hand embroidered by a lady (Amy) that I used to work with about 30 years ago and her sister was selling the tablecloths at a craft fayre.
The photograph really doesn't show the fine needlework and the beautiful pink flowers off to their full potential. I must admit I rarely use it because I'm frightened that it might get spoiled, which is silly really because it's just going to waste sitting in my drawer - so I shall iron it and put on my dinning room table.
Amy is now in 80's and lives in a sheltered housing complex but my memories of her is seeing her at lunchtimes sitting in her office busy sewing away. I bought the tablecloth because of those memories and because of the time and effort she put into each piece.
