the domestic sphere

my dalliances with all things domestic


Granny's Tablecloth

Here is a tablecloth my grandmother made. She crocheted it with something slightly thicker than sewing thread. It's about 6 feet by 12 feet. It took her years! I remember her working on it when I was a little girl. Anyway, it is a great testament to her skills and her perfectionism. It is completely inspiring and untterly daunting at the same time.

It was a gift for my aunt originally. She, in turn, gave it to us as a wedding gift. I love having it, though I don't use it. My question is: how should I be storing it? Should I wash it (it does have a couple of stains), and if so, how? I can't imagine where I would block something so large!
