Linen Scraps!


Just as the insanity and trouble of the past two weeks finally calmed, and as I started to think about sewing and quilts again, I found a delightful gift in my mailbox. Jude of Spirit Cloth very generously sent me a fat packet of linen scraps, tied with a purple ribbon!

I love them! What wonderful prints and stripes and plaids, and beautiful colors! 
Oh my, this is going to be fun.

The fabrics look summery and light. It should be fun coming up with something scrappy and beautiful. Have fun! ~ksp

Oh, I'm glad you're getting little nourishment after such a hard time, what a sweet surprise in the mail! I like those colors too - they are a little brighter than your normal choices aren't they!

Your linens are lovely. I'll peek in again to see how it comes along. And I love your embroidered piece of linen skirt below. Wow!

Best of luck with your parents...how difficult. Sending you warm wishes!
