Time for a French Linen sort out!

Happy Weekend all!

Well today I am going once more into the breach my friends and sorting my French linens....

Recently I have bought a bit more and it has overspilled from a drawer to a box as well.  I really do not need any more for a while BUT if I see a really good quality French linen sheet at the right price and some beautiful embroidery or monogram on it...... I am undone!

Well I thought I would try and sort through today and put all whole sheets in the drawer and any cut or off cuts into the plastic box.  Make sure they are all folded properly and in order.

I have been cutting out a few as backgrounds for samplers and pictures that are in the making and when cutting one, you may as well cut a few more for when needed.  Then I press them lightly and lay them flat for use.

It is a little dull today but hope it will pick up weather wise as later today we are off to friends for a B B Q.... Tomorrow I may pop to a vintage textile fair......

Whatever you are doing this weekend have a great time and if you are stitching or finishing a project then......

Happy Stitching!

    Loving the beautiful old embroidered linens, so gorgeous! Especially the white on white work, love it!

  2. Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks, I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks. architects London
