I picked out some pictures of cut-work from my albums for today.
The ones above and below were my own designs.
The one above was worked from an old Portuguese book that my mother had brought back from a holiday in the early 1950s. It took me ages, but is a lovely design.
This is a tablecloth. In the 1990s it was possible to send for a linen tablecloth with one's choice of design printed on it. This is the one I chose.
This one is NOT my work. A friend brought it back from Singapore for me. It is amazing work obviously made by someone really gifted at this kind of work.
