Old linen a new way


At a recent estate sale, I bought a ton of old really old textured linen (for $1) It had been hand embroidered in a very strange duck and tree pattern. After about 2 months of ripping out a little here a little there. I dyed it today. Flat dying is so wonderful. You get two sides to each piece.

Here is the back of the linen, nice but …

Here is the front! Now that is better! We are having fun in my big old under appliance pan.

  1. Lovely!!! This is one of my favorite colors. I’m happy to hear about someone else who engages with the cloth from start to finish like I do. Ripping out those stitches gives you an intimate connection with each piece as it tells you what it wants to become.
