I found a dear little beaded placemat, woven from glass beads. This type of weaving was popular in the 70's using plastic tube beads but as this one is glass I am guessing it is a bit older than that.The beads used are probably European. I would love to dig a bit deeper into the history of this style of beadweaving.
It is really very pretty isn't it? And so neatly stitched!
