ok, this is my "domesticated" side now – lots of shots from my new flat. back home, when i was growing up, tablecloths were a big deal. my mum, auntie, grandma, everyone was very particular about tablecloths. so i guess, i picked up this too. i only have a couple, but – a flat feels like a home only once i have one all laid out (although this one was difficult to iron out due to material!)

Tote & new tablecloth

Tote & new tablecloth
A tote for my mom sewn this week. I decided I didn’t want to look at the clutter of the books piled on my end table anymore, so I was set to make a tablecloth when I realized that this vintage one from ebay that was already up in my closet would work in the room now and even fits the table. Ah, serendipity.
