Unusual fabric, and a doiley.

I found these at Janet's Jumble, the Collectables store in Eltham. It is not an opshop, but it is more interesting to fossick around there than it is in Savers! This photo of the doiley is far too dark; I should have taken another shot. The embroidery is in various shades of brown and cream, and is very pretty.
I couldn't resist this piece of fabric; it looks French, or at least Continental. Who knows what I'll use it for? I'll find inspiration one day in one of my magazines or books!

Really an impressive fabric! One that requires the ideas to "percolate" for a while, but I'm sure you'll find the perfect project. Hmmm. Might it be depicting colonial America?

Interesting piece of fabric to have in your stash. I'm sure the right project for it will come along one day.
