Vintage linens~

I love to hunt for vintage/antique linens~
Antique shops & festivals...
Thrift stores & estate sales...
Lawn sales & auctions...

I immediately put the linens into a mild soak~
Little bit of laundry detergent & oxyclean... warm water.
Sometimes I need to repeat this soak.

Most stains come out over night...
A cold water rinse and gentle squeeze~
I lay them on bath towels and roll them up!

Once they rest for a day I press them, medium heat.

Amazing how vibrant the colors are!

Some are worn... they are just as beautiful as the nearly perfect pieces!

The beautiful stitches~
Time spent...

So many different designs!

Most linen pieces do not have a pattern.
Unique, free hand designs!
From the heart~

I hope you have a wonderful week, Sweet Friends!
Thank you for stopping by~

Drumlin Snowman

I was humming, "The hills are alive... with the sound of music..."
the entire time I was punching in the drumlins!

Snowman bellies to fill in...
Sky to finish~

Hope you have been enjoying a creative start to 2016!

Valentine Hearts~

Heart to heart to heart...
Pillows, pincushions or hugs to sit on teddy bears laps!
Each with a Valentine message and a sweet little friend~

A big larger this year as my friend Jan zipped them up by machine!
I did enjoy hand-stitching them in the past...
It is much nicer to have a larger size & more to share!

Hope your New Year is off to a great start~
Filled with love and laughter!
