Heard It Through The Grapevine

Grape tablecloth – center motif

While looking for a Christmas tablecloth my parents made I also found another one. As I wasn’t quite sure where it came from, I checked with my mum. She told me it belonged to her mother, my granny. I think I picked it up because no-one else wanted it after she had died.

four napkins

This one has got hand appliquéd grape and leaf motifs with some embroidery for the stems as well as a hand sewn border which is secured with some tiny blanket stitch all around the rim. It came with four napkins – or are they placemats?

Although I’m not a friend of pink, I used it for a while on my living room table just because I liked the craftmanship. Of course, it’s obviously not one of a kind, I think such things were produced in bulk. But I love it anyway.
