Tracy, from The Vintage Bothy in England was wondering what to do with a damaged quilt she had, but now I see she is taking it to market tomorrow and will most likely sell 'as is'. I am going to pinch some of her display ideas.
I wish I felt I could sell this 30s applique scottie dog quilt 'as is'. Some one has used it as a drop sheet and there is barely a motif that does not have paint splatters on it. What a shame, it was so adorable. I cannot bring myself to throw it out and I really am not a pillow maker....perhaps I could find some bits to frame.
I have never been to The Textile Museum in Washington and was intrigued by an upcoming exhibition Second Lives, the age old art of recycling textiles. I found their web page sparse and would love to know more.
Oliver (5 weeks) was over for dinner, I was horrified to find out he had no mitts. What kind of Canadian boy has no mitts, its still -20 or so. So I knitted these for him the next day. So satisfying to use up some of my vast stash.
see my pretty 30s baby pillow slip.....3rd row
