BUSY DAY
















Harv. is doing taxes today at the library and tomorrow so I try and get my housework, washing, etc. done when he is gone. I also managed to get another of my panels put together and just need to hand sew down the binding and I then only have 1 more to go. I am liking this idea better every day.

I have another buy from the flea market to show you. I bought two pieces from this lady and she said they came from an estate sale on Cape Cod and she had the accent to go with it. They are old and beautiful. Don't know what I will do with them but couldn't let them go. This one is about 8 ft. long and maybe 20" wide. I assume it was for a long hall table or dresser. It is made of silk and has a beautiful fringe on it. There are embroidered areas all over it. It was hard to take pics and I am not the best photographer as you probably all know by now.


The last piece is a piece of red and cream ticking type 100% linen. there was a yard and a half in the piece and it is 54" wide. Would recover a cushion type chair but I have no need of any. It was only 5.00.

I actually bought it to use playing around with journals, etc. I am getting the itch to get into the paper and cloth items. Will be a nice change from the cq. I have taken one on line class and have received some good ideas. After the Great Adventure maybe I will have time to start on this. Otherwise the summer is looming and on a very hot Chicago day it will be good to play inside with it.
