novelty heirloom



 This little project is a vintage linen napkin that was hand dyed.  I used wool scraps and purl cotton threads to create the freeform design.  The embroidery was done using threads Sharon had given me from a vintage sewing basket.


Below is another heirloom piece I had started for this challenge, but unfortunately I waited too long to quilt it after marking it with my air erase marker.
