I bought a couple of grain sacks at an antiques fair recently intending to make them into 'things'. Having bought them, I was very reluctant to cut them up especially as they're not cheap (it's making that first snip, isn't it?) but today I now have two cushions ......
(which ought to go on the website but I think they would look just right in the new kitchen)
.....and a heart.
I also made a cushion from this French monogrammed 'R' and some Laura Ashley fabric.
I like collecting items bearing my initial (especially linens) and it's very handy to have a daughter with the same initial to pass them on to! Here are just a few
a papier mache brooch, a key, a Victorian sewing box
and a tin bearing my middle name (which as a child/teenager I really disliked).
How about posting some photos of anything you have with your initial/monogram and, as a matter of interest, are there any other Ruths out there who visit my blog?
