home woven and precious

I have just started 2 new hangings - involving vintage lino cuts ( unfortunately I do not know who or where they were cut) - paper and hand embroidery. But the best of all and by far the most precious is the background material. A hand woven bedsheet.
It is gloriously soft and sympathetic and bears a whole lifetime of history. I am having to be extra careful cutting into it and using it sparingly. It is delightful to work with.
Even the shadows of the material are fantastic.

A work made with love by an awe inspired embroiderer.

Recycling at its very very best.
