I saw this on eBay and added it to my watch list straight away! I felt sure that it would have a few bids on it but when I checked back with 5 minutes to go there were no bids at all. I placed a bid and crossed my fingers! I couldn't even watch as the minutes counted down. Amazingly I won! This beautiful cloth and napkin cost me a huge 85p.
It is a really clever design. The napkin slots in behind the butterfly! It needs ironing but other than that there are no holes or flaws.
I think it must be quite old as the fabric has faded a little. That just adds to the charm for me! The stitches are so tiny and neat. I wish that I could sew like that!
It makes me want to play tea parties! I used to love doing that as a child with my teddies and dollies around me. I am a little worried about using it in case I spill something on it. I tend to keep things for best but then they just get put in a box and not given the love and appreciation they deserve.
