on the line November 2016

The washing line in the side drive always has something on it.
Either drying, airing or being assessed.

1930s applique is OK, just needs a rebind - a job for next summer.

1960s 60s crazy quilt with older -  1940s -50s cottons, I took off the back and batting the back as almost all the stitching , both quilting and  binding, had disintegrated. Must  have been a really cheap poly thread.


Lovely depression era 'fans' in the back of the van, waiting its turn. ( its in almost perfect nick)

  Made from vintage sheets circa 1960s - 70s, just needed a rinse.

Sold already!

' Umbrella' ??? applique, 1950s, needs a good soak , but other than that in good shape.
 Pity it's so ugly.  ( whoops, I'll never sell it with a remark like that)


  1. I love that 1930s applique, it's fabulous. The orange one is fab too, no wonder it's sold already. xxx
