Collections - table cloths

I like table cloths. I like looking at them folded up in drawers. I like setting the table with them for different occasions. I can't resist a good table cloth from the charity shop or car boot. 

I'll take them home and love them. I've lacy ones, checked ones, Christmas ones, damask ones, different coloured ones, large, medium and small.

This one is not yet made into a cloth. It was a piece of fabric from the charity shop. There's double the size of the table here so I may make some napkins as well as a table cloth.

All set to make then - there's another project to start.


  1. What is is about a lovely tablecloth! I love table cloths, I have loads. Special ones I keep and some not so special I use, I use them a lot, Sometimes I wish I could go back in time when the tablecloth was new and have tea and cake.

  2. I love them too, particularly embroidered or lacy ones. Unfortunately I can never seem to find any in my local charity shops!

  3. I love to see the amazing workman ( woman!)ship in so many old tablecloths. We have a few made by my OH`s Mum and her own mother, who were very good needlewomen, but I can` resist another if I find one in a charity shop.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
