Linens and how to use them

If you find a linen item you love, but it's not in the best of shape, don't pass it by. Torn seams and holes can be darned; a stain can be hidden with a clever fold; a large piece can be cut and the salvaged remnant made into a pillow or mounted under glass.
    Use vintage lace-edged sheets as curtains, bedspreads, even room dividers.
    Put embroidered hand towels in powder rooms. Make them into little pillows or baby quilts as gifts.

I make quilts!
