I took a short break from knitting, and made something fresh and new from something old and tatter’d. Like the saying goes ” a silk purse from a sow’s ear”.
Really nice linen.
From the back side I cut out a large square.
Folded hem, ironed, pinned, then
settled into stitching . . .
I am intrigued with the thing which is mitered corners.
I figured out how to do it all by myself !
Well, not exactly a silk purse, but in my opinion better.
Something new from something old .
A hand-made linen handkerchief !
Twenty by twenty inches. A generous sized hikers’ pocket companion.
