"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

I bought this Crinoline Lady doiley at an opshop that was posing as an antique dealer. Even though the design is lovely and the stitching well executed, the crochet edge is coming away, and you can see on the bottom left of this picture where there is a hole torn in the material, thus ruining that part of the embroidery. The saleswoman charged me $5 for it! In a better state I would have been happy to pay $25, but as it is....still, it is nice.
