A Great find!

What a great find... Visiting a charity shop that was holding a special sale to collect for Queenslands flood victims, I came across this supper cloth made in filet crochet. I can do this type of crochet but I find it difficult to hold the fine cotton so even though the cloth is a little out of shape I thought it was a bargain at $1.50. It is beautifully crocheted and I think it is quite old, not that it matters, I just loved it and couldn't resist buying it.

Very true ladies, I think I was just there at the right time Chris although I have come across some nice things at different times. I bought 3 beautiful tablecloths at a garage sale one day, lovely crocheted edges and they were so cheap I couldn't pass them up... :))
