When you first move into a home, it is all stations go with redecorating and adding personal touches. However, i always find that it isn’t until you’ve lived in the space for a while that you start really adding your own mark on somewhere.
Over the past few years I have collected cotton embroidered hankies. Some might find this odd but I find them to be delicate and romantic, and in todays age they no longer serve a purpose but I want to display my collection. With this in mind, I am going to make a curtain and quilt. Patchworked together, seams to seams.
I am fond of the idea of creating a patchwork curtain. The idea of collecting vintage handkerchiefs, lace off-cuts and beautifully embroidered cotton fabrics and piecing them all together to create a curtain or voile.
I think something like this would make a striking room divider…what do you think?
