I have a real problem. I hoard linens. My closets are full. My chests are full. You'll even find them stuffed underneath the beds.
It doesn't matter what they are, as long as they are early German handwoven linens (called Bauernleinen in Germany, as they were made by the farmers' wives for use mainly in the kitchen and the bedroom).
I have sheets and duvets and pillow shams and kitchen towels and nightgowns and table runners and napkins . . .
. . . and rolls and rolls of linen woven well over a hundred years ago still waiting to be used for a project.
. . . and she had also made Roman shades for the twins' bedroom windows out of blue and white ticking from an old mattress cover.
The next project is my bedroom. I have three bolts of gray flax linen that I can't wait to cut into!
