~ White Wednesday ~

my love for textiles is varied ~
I love old fabrics as much as I love the needlework incorporated into them...

antique quilts send me over the moon....

vintage lace panel catching the early morning light...

labor intensive, yet stunning crocheted lace...

simple, sturdy feedsacks ~

an impromptu curtain from a tablecloth...

and that old staple, buttons ~

my collection of 'white' buttons is ginormous...
and steadily & happily growing....
but only thee best old ones :
mother of pearl
vegetable ivory
in everyshade of white imaginable...
do any of you collect buttons or old textiles...
the hunt for them is as fun as finding them, isn't it?
I cannot pass up a button jar,
in hopes there will be a 'beauty' buried 'neath....
for White Wednesday

Blessings from the Farm...

I love anything textile related. I collect antique quilts. Sometimes the more tatteresd the better.
My collection of buttons continues to grow. Sometimes I feel quilty that I will never use all them in my lifetime. Then in the next breath I find it hard to part with some special ones. Just crazy I guess...crazy for textiles.

I love the tablecloth curtain! I just made a curtain for my diningroom, and I've been in a curtain "mood" lately LOL perhaps I'm waiting for spring. Love the clippy hooks of that curtain, I think I will use that style for the bedroom!
