Patch work


I have a small square table covered with my mom's 40+ years old cross stitch cloth . I like to keep my threads,stitching accessories on it while I stitch. I just love that table for many reasons and that poor table was begging for a make over :) so I made this simple patch work cover..

                                    

Yesterday evening I was sitting in my balcony and stitching..suddenly there was a storm and I managed to take a couple of pictures...

                                        
                                                                  before the storm


                                          

Do you have any favorite place or a furniture which is a part of your stitching journey? Please do share with me...

Have a great weekend!
Happy stitching!
Anita

that is certainly a storm and a half you had.
new cloth looks very nice on the table.
Nothing interesting in the way of furniture etc unless I count a small box like table that was my Grandmothers, think it should be used for my current projects now I think about it but it houses the telephone directory etc and odd bits and pieces

Very lovely looking cloth for your table. I have a sewing box that belonged to my aunt that I treasure.

We have an old singer sewing machine and my mom claims that it's almost 100 years old!I'd done a patchwork many years ago but never finished it.The storm picture is awesome - it looks more like a tornado.

@ Ina - wow..100 years old sewing machine! Do you use it? Are there spare parts available now ?
My mom's machine is only 40 years old which still works( !) and only twice she had to change the shuttle.Old is gold is true I think :)

Anita,
thank you very much for your visit and kind comment ...
Your embroidery is getting pretty ...
I like this type of embroidery, which looks like a cloth sample points ... It is very beautiful ...
On my local embroidery, usually in the room, at the foot of a window that got into the yard ... It is light and quiet.
The photos from her window, before and during the storm, were very expressive.
A good week for self and family,
with hugs Maria Filomena.
