I was at our local shops earlier purchasing a few mundane Monday morning essentials and I popped into what I consider to be the best charity shop in the area. I often have a nosy around here on my way back from shopping, but I don’t always buy anything. Today, however, my eye was caught by a large piece of stripey fabric. Unsure as to its purpose, I grabbed it and unfolded it. Well, I think it must be a tablecloth fit for a very large table (it’s easily big enough to cover our dining table twice over). It’s a lovely, heavy, cottony linen and the colours are really bold and warm. On top of that, it only cost three quid.
When I got home it dawned on me that this would make a nice find for my inaugural Magpie Monday post. My mind’s already ticking over as to what I might do with it. I think I may cut it in half and use one part as a tablecloth and perhaps turn the other half into cushion covers for our dining chairs. Might even be enough left for some napkins. Love it!
