Now this isn't actually new (I'm trying so hard not to acquire anymore treasure as i don't have any room left)its been in storage for approx 20 years but i had forgot about it and only found it again recently when looking for Xmas decorations so it feels like new.
Its a bedspread made by my ex husbands grandmother(all the way from America), its made with a very good quality calico and has a wonderful pattern of blue cotton hooked into it.
It is Queen sized and has a border around the bottom edge.
Beautiful as it is I haven't used it, (thought my second husband might feel strange with it on our bed)just keeping it to hand on to one of my daughters when their a little older and will appreciate the work and skill of their Great Grandmother.
Would anyone know what this type of needlework/craft this is called?
I have been Op shopping this week but only for glass jars for jam and pickles ..............
It was so hard to walk by the linen shelf.............Maybe one more gingham table cloth..................
