THE TABLECLOTH -- which it took 3 generations and 45 years to make!

My grandfather started making this tablecloth in the middle of the 1950s. When he died shortly after, only 50 years old, my father took over. However, some years later, he also died at the age of 50 - and the tablecloth was still unfinished. 20 years later I decided to finish off what they had started, even though I was a bit scared that the same thing would happen to me. However, I completed the work in year 2000 and I'm now over 60 years old, so I think the "curse" has been broken....
