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.

A Time in Stitch

A time in Stitch – this is the waiting room quilt because almost all the hand stitching was done in various waiting rooms most often the Oncology Floor at the University of Chicago DCAM center. Many hours of peaceful stitching the only thing under my control at the time.

A big work in progress

I have a custom order for Christmas due in December.  It’s based on my art quilt “The Old Oak”  only bigger and with a few saplings added.  I call it “The Old Oak and Friends”

Here are progress pics and some details!  I am having a blast.
