Stitches of Yesteryears

Last month I went back to my parent's place for a visit...and I remembered the tablecloth that I did with my mom. Those years i.e. 25 years back, what we have is what we called now the Red Charts - where design are sold using red background and black symbols printed. And this one is one of those charts that we purchased. This is for my mom's dining table for 8 seating. Since it's a little too long for me to take snaps, I have folded it into 2 and took only half of it. Worked on I think on 10ct (maybe...can't be sure) Aida (expensive at that time but the cheapest now made from Taiwan I think....those days we know nothing of Zweigart) here it is..... 6 full strands of a mixture between Anchor, DMC and Cosmo threads (back then, we know no rule about separating those strands first and join them back before stitching...heheheheheheh)

Here is the closeup of one of the basket
