A Touch of Homemade



Here is the Christmas tablecloth I finished this week. I bought it last year at the local thrift store for less than $5, and I considered it a bargain. I didn't realize at the time what a bargain it really was until I got home and saw that a great deal of the cross-stitch already had been completed. Do you like browsing at thrift and junk stores? You never know what you will find! One person's junk is another person's treasure. As I worked on this tablecloth I wondered about the person who started it, and why she didn't finish. She was so close.
