I’ve been balancing the beginning of the spinning experience with the completing of two pieces I started last week. The first is ‘Remembering II’ – the second in my series of white pieces made from vintage linens:
The background of this piece is very old indeed, and has a hand-worked edge, which may be crochet, or it may be needle-lace. It’s so finely worked that it’s hard to tell:
I’m enjoying working on these white pieces; they are very restful and seem to radiate peace. It’s such a pleasure and privilege to work with these wonderful old fabrics and to tease out their memories. I hope the women who spent hours and hours patiently stitching these edgings would be happy to see them in their present form.
You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
