A Brown Bag of Treasures

Those of you who know me know that I love to work with old linens, fabrics and crocheted lace.  I pick things up here and there from time to time and make something out of the worn pieces when I get the chance.  A week ago or so a friend at church asked if I would be interested in some things she had for several years and had not been using and had no plans to do so in the future.  She said that she had seen that I has purchased similar items at Goodwill and garage sales and would I like the items she had.  I said that I would and the next time I saw her this is what she brought to me.

Any linen lover would have a hard time waiting to see what is inside.

This is everything laid out on my dining room table

I think I have an idea for this piece already

Sweet birds!  I bought a pillow made from something similar at "Farm Chicks" this year

I love the color of this crochet work

Thank you so much Katrina for thinking of me and sharing  these lovely pieces with me.  I will keep you posted on how they are used.  I just can't get distracted by them until after Christmas.
