But I DO have a number of really interesting boxes in my sewing room. I opened a few last weekend, and want to share one with you. It will probably take a few blog-posts to cover all the items!
It is a box full of OLD items (mostly unfinished) that have been given to me. They found a home in my room - and someday will turn into a useful item. Some of the items are OLD . . maybe you would even say VINTAGE.
This is an apron printed onto thin, handkerchief-type blue fabric. It is obviously ready to be embroidered - and would be lovely. My question: should I preserve this in its original state or complete it as was intended?
Here is another - a full set of yellow 'scarves' to go on top of a buffet and a table-runner, I think. They seem to be made of a lovely golden linen.
To the right of each of the large pieces is a close-up of the label inked onto the fabric.
Again, I wonder if I should preserve these in their original state or complete them.
One more item in this state:
I'm hoping that some of you out in blog-land will have an informed opinion - or even expert advice about what I should do with these items.
Leave a comment so I can know whether to preserve them as-is or (eventually) add the embroidery and finish them up.
Come back in the next day or so - and I'll show you another pillow that makes me laugh and laugh. I have NO IDEA where I got this! Here is a little teaser picture:
