Another Danish Gem

This is among my newly acquired gems. This hand crocheted tablecloth measures about 52" x 78". My great grandmother made it, but I don't know when. She died in 1985, but it probably was made years and years before then. I don't crochet - unless you count the potholders I made in 4-H when I was 10! But I can appreciate the time and skill it took to make this.
Looks good on my table!

  2. This is totally gorgeous- what a wonderful piece of work that reminds you of your grandmother. My grandmother did not knit, crochet or embroider but she did cook and bake many yummy things.
    Thanks for sharing your treasure.
    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  4. Our grandmother did a lot of crochet too. That is the type thread I learned on. Not sure I could do it any more. It's beautiful on your table.
