Tim and I went this week to buy cloths for a runner and placemats (not to be used together!) and had a lot of fun.The women always seem friendly and happy, and I love seeing them working on their crafts. These cloths are hand-tinted with natural dyes and then embroidered by hand. They're all different of course. I'm going to "mount" them on dark brown cloths to make a set of 8 table cloths.
