While I work up the post on the amazing time I had at the Chicago Quilt Festival, I will show you part of my haul.
As you know I love vintage textiles, and I have a special affinity for special pieces. And pillowcases. My god, I love a good vintage pillowcase.
These pillowcases are so awesome with these gorgeous inset crochet edges. Can you believe these were less than $18 a PAIR? Just on a lark I checked Bed Bath And Beyond’s website and they don’t sell them that cheap for NEW pillowcases.
I need hankies like I need a HOLE IN MY HEAD. Seriously, I have an addiction. But the cocktail napkin about the water cure is hilarious.
Then there’s this piece. OMG, it’s so wonderful. It says “Pure as the brightest gem is Mother’s love alone.” It can also be translated as “Mother’s Love is as pure as a gemstone.” It was a popular German embroidery from the early 1900’s.
