Homespun Linen

There is nothing like homespun linen. It is one of life's pleasures. The idea that someone sits at a loom and made this from a fiber that came from a plant is remarkable. I love the color and the texture. The cost has gotten out of sight for me. I still have a good backlog of material in which to make my bags and to use for my projects. A couple of years ago I even sold some of my pieces. Some of what is left are the large tablecloths that are too good to go "under the knife" or in this case scissors.
