A New Project

Have you seen this photo on Pinterest



I am in LOVE with this tablecloth and have decided to make one for my kitchen table.  I went to a local antique mall this afternoon and found about 40 old crocheted doilies.  And I chose my best fitting, in best condition old linen sheet that works perfectly as a table cloth and now I get to start stitching doilies.  What fun!!

I'll keep you posted on my progress!

Miss Flea (Felicia) has started one of these ~ she actually was buying doilies in the BC Ant. mall when we were there! How funny!
