I don't know how the subject came up but I happened to mention that I love vintage linens. She sent me home with these dishtowels.
Aren't they great? She thinks she bought them at a local bazaar years ago. Can you imagine the time that went into these? Not only are they embroidered...
...but they also have crocheted edging. No two are the same. Each crocheted edge is different, even on the same towel.
I love the colors. They're so cute that I'm even considering purchasing a coordinating fabric for a backing and making pillows out of them. I think they'd be darling in a guest room.
