Have I got many tablecloths?

Yep. Quite a few....hundred.. I took this pile (32 cloths) of some of my favourites to the Boronia Probus Club last week, to give a talk about them to about 40 ladies (mostly 60 plus age group). They just loved my cloths, and enjoyed my enthusiastic talk about why I collect them, and why they should care for their own family linens.

This is the cupboard before I'd put that pile back in there. It was hard to find space, even though there were no more put back in than came out the week before!
Remember those leaves I messed up last week? I found a way to use them - here are two, appliqued on to an old cotton tote bag, which I was going to throw out, but I'll probably use it now!

Hi Gina!

I like how you store your tablecloths. That`s quite a collection. The leaves look nice on your bag.

I don't know how you were able to choose 32 tablecloths to talk about from the hundreds you must have. You have a huge collection and what a great way to display them all. Sylvia

Wow Gina - I knew you collected them, but didn't realise how much you had.
Love what you did with the little leaves by the way...
