Today was a great picking day! In addition to the gorgeous velvet fabric I shared on my facebook page earlier, I also found some vintage treasures.
I fell completely in love with these sweet crewel works. They were sitting, unappreciated and forlorn on a shelf with some pretty rad (not) 80's "art". They cried out to me to take them home and give them new life.
Their previous owner had used masking tape to bind the edges of the linen (please, please don't do this! If you must tape, use an acid free tape made especially for this purpose!) But I think I will be able to salvage enough of the edges to not cut off any of the needlework.
Here's my dilemma; Pillows? Or quilted wall hangings? or maybe even a tote?
