Laundry and Linens



It's a lazy overcast sleepy day at my house. I am trying to be productive however, so the washing machine has been busy! Over the past six months or so I have collected a huge bagful of vintage embroidered linens - some were given to me and some were finds from my antique store ramblings. It is time to wash...then iron...and iron....and iron...













and then create. I'm working on lots of new ideas in my head...how I might combine my felted wool and these wonderful embroidered pieces. I have enjoyed making pillows from old dresser scarves...
and using buttons from my mother's button box. These are the kinds of things that make me happy and help me to feel connected to the one who taught me everything about sewing...my mother.
