I can't work out how I feel about cutting into and sewing with these linens that have a history that I know about.
I have met the old owners and visited their home. I know some of their stories and parts of their history. I cried when I heard he had died.
These are not random bits of fabric but precious pieces of someone's family history.
I think they probably just need to spend a bit of time with the other linens in my stash to become fabric again. Fabric with beautiful colours and patterns but fabric that doesn't feel like I am cutting into history when I cut into it.
Do you think I am being overly sentimental?
