I decided yesterday was the day to back the van out of the garage and start setting up tables. Then we had a wicked storm come through and the tornado sirens went off again. Luckily we didn’t have any hail here but it was only a couple miles away. On the right in the photo is all that remains of a day of the week towel set that I embroidered 50 years ago. On the
left is a new set ready to embroider, the same designs ironed onto Indian Head cotton. I even have the bottom edges stitched and fringed.
Last night I opened a small cedar chest my aunt gave to me and there was the bottom apron finished and the top one still waiting for its waistband. I know my aunt did a lot of hand embroidery so I’m guessing she did these in the late 1920s or early 1930s. There are age spots on the top one.
This dresser scarf has a dirty spot along the crease on the right edge. I wonder if I dare try to wash it out. I don’t want any of the blue transfer to disappear.
We’re in for 2 more days of hot sticky weather and possible severe storms. The cool front can’t get here soon enough for me.
