    Yes, I will too, one day. It's so lovely!

  • Jody Regan

    It's the " one day" that is my problem.....It always turns into next week, next month, sometimes next year or the dreaded never .....get too caught up in other things, like looking through my piles of beautiful linens and doilies that I fear I'll never use.

  • Karen Holford

    Same here! I have a whole load of linens longing to be blended into something beautiful! I must pause and enjoy them and make them into something beautiful I'll see everyday to warm my heart.

  • Jody Regan

    I really hope you do Karen, and then post it here. Hopefully it will be what finally inspires me to stop buying yet more vintage linens, lace, doilies and just looking at them; then I'm stonewalled for so many reasons. At least I really enjoy looking through them all from time to time, but I have so many that I could probably craft or stitch two or three things in that amount of time. I fear it's a(n) almost hopeless cause.

    Mmm, I have a similar addiction and problem! Keep trying to book a week to make things, but I'm a freelance writer and work has to come first! I have made a lovely duvet cover from vintage linens, and a bed skirt, gathering some of the good parts of torn linens to an old sheet. They have worked well. So keep hoping, In the mean time if looking at them collecting them makes you happy, enjoy the moment. I also made a lovely bed skirt using worn table cloths and then cutting worn napkins on the diagonal and gathering them up on top of the table cloth layer to make like petals. Quite pretty. None of these projects took more than a day, I also want to stitch doilies all over a new whole cloth quilt that I got in a sale...Need to finish the writing first...
