some beachy linens

Today, I went for my lap swim and then after lunch I spent a few hours helping out a friend who is getting ready for a yard sale. She is moving from a rather large house to an apartment.A couple of my friends, Anne and Fern spent the whole day and boy did they work cleaning out the garage. I spent my time in a bedroom going through linens and pricing boxes of assorted things.
 I brought home this set of linen place mats and napkins. I don't use this type of thing, but they were so pretty, I thought they could be made into something-- a table cloth, a runner, cushions, who knows. Aren't they pretty?
Tomorrow, I'm hoping to get my things organized to  take to our craft shop down town.
Oh, and by the way, I figured out my matching points problem on the blocks from yesterday's post. When the seams are ironed flat, they go together perfectly. Unfortunately, I'm on the last row. Now I have to join all the rows together, but I can't open the seams. I will have to iron really well and struggle with it.

I'm kinda a sucker for these kinds also, Holly. They are lovely.

I love linens like these too! Especially the "beachy" themes. They'll work well for summer. I wonder how you'll use them?

Holly, those are gorgeous!!! I see a beautiful summer throw for a sofa or chair!! Can't wait to see what you do with them! said...

Holly, thanks for coming to visit me again! I am trying to catch up on reading. I am DETERMINED this year to be able to buy a quilt or something from you. It would mean a lot to have it in my house and to buy from an artist who puts so much into her creations. I'm excited about it and will enjoy shopping to find the one that calls my name!!
