When I started "blogging", I seriously under estimated the amount of inspiration and motivation I would get from fellow bloggers! As a result of this clever lady's post I dug deep into my collection of old linen and found a tray cloth I picked up for pence at a car boot. It was already beautifully embroidered to a standard I could never hope to reach. However, I did feel confident enough to add some text using transfers from this fab book. The text I've embroidered looks as if it's getting smaller but I promise it's the angle the pic was taken at! Using some quilt fabric I turned the finished linen into a cushion. It's such a good feeling to give these old pieces "new life" and in a way pay respect to the women who spent hours stitching them in the first place.
