on this one cotton cloth. Once again.........I was rummaging through a dusty junk place and wadded in a basket of mix match tattered linens was this breath taking piece
(with no stains or holes)
I think the whole store heard me gasp and cry out with glee as I clung the piece close to me and took off like a chicken with a prize worm.
Someone worked so many hours on this and it looks to have never been used.
Each design has been carefully and accurately placed to balance out the cloth. It has been hand hemmed
It is the size of a queen size bed and I am thinking that maybe the person who stitched this was planning on making it into a quilt perhaps? or maybe just a lovely spread for the bed?
There is a mixture of flower designs
stitched so excellently and in such vibrant colors.
There are also beautifully stitched Southern belles.
Some designs are very vintage
Each one in perfect hand embroidery
and well thought out color scheme.
My dilemma...........I collect vintage linens
I sell vintage linens........
I can't decide whether to sell this piece or to hang onto it.
I don't feel it fits our bedroom decor.........it really is very feminine maybe more for a young girl/teens room or a single lady.
I am really on the fence with this one.
I can't decide on what to use it for except to store it away in my collection ...........
what do you think?
