Stamped Tablecloth

I have been working on this tablecloth off and on for quite a while. It reminds me of my grandmother since she made us stamped pillow cases. She was a wonderful embroiderer and I am lucky to still have some of her work. She also sewed us cloths and made quilts, again I am lucky to have examples of it all.

It does bring me to a dilemma...I have no kids, so who to give it all to? Plus millennials do not really care about this stuff so much and I am not sure if my nieces would be interested in stuff made by someone they never met. I will ask them of course, but doubt they would be interested.

At any rate, God willing I have time to figure it out.

I am down to the last corner and I changed the flowers from pink to peach since peach is my favorite color.

It is a kit from Bucilla and the fabric is pretty thin, so I plan to sew a backing fabric on it and place it over my mom's sewing machine. It will keep the sewing machine (a 1940 something White in a wooden cabinet) clean until I can find someone to refinish it, and remind me of my mom and grandma at the same time!
