fabric heart pillow... sold

I keep saying 'vintage' but I really do use mostly vintage items . [ some from my mother ]
This is an old linen tablecloth , the corners are pieces of a vintage bureau scarf,
the crochet part is my mom's
The buttons too
and old pearls .
the seed beads are not vintage !
this is for Heather
Thank you Heather !

Gorgeous, Sandy. Love the raggedy trim on the top and the sweet colored beads sprinkled on the white.
I have a BUNCH of crocheted doilies that I inherited. WAY too many. I'll send you some.

Beautiful!
I love going to estate sales and collecting cherished tablecloths, pillowcases, and such. I have a BIG pile now with BIG plans to SOMEDAY make something out of them, to give them a second life...

This is really lovely Sandy. The vintage part makes it extra special. Our local charity shop had a sale a while back of loads of vintage lace and suchlike. I wish I had got some now but they went quickly.

I bought the working hands at Lowe's, but I think they're out of stock now. I neglected using it for a week and guess what? Cracks are back. The fabric absorbs all the oils from my fingertips, I think.
