Is it cheating to not post for so long and then make multiple posts on the same day?  Probably, but who’s to stop me?

The weather was finally decent this weekend at Wimberly.  We had a lovely day, and I returned with a large bag full of vintage tablecloth bounty.  Who can resist hand-worked cross-stitch and knotted lace at $5 dollars a pound?
