Embroidered Cloth

Generations before Martha Stewart, women were enhancing their homes and families lives with beauty.  I love to go to garage, estate and flea market sales where I search for these women's creations of years ago.  I am drawn to the tables heaped with the needlework of women.  They used their rare leisure time to embroider, tat, needlepoint, quilt, knit and crochet their visions.  After buying this little cloth embroidered with violets and daisies (with a finishing touch of crochet on the edges  :-)  ), I was excited to place it on my table with daffodils in a tea cup.  This unsigned lovely needlework cloth now enhances the beauty of my painting and my home.
