a treasure in tatting
This pillowcase is a treasure that I recently found at the thrift store. Minus the edging.
(btw--when I see items like this with $.25 price tag attached it is such a bittersweet feeling --- sweet because it is now in my possession, but bitter because the time & love that must have gone into embroidering this pillowcase...well, it is a shame that it ended up tossed in a bargain bin at the local thrift store.)
And since I have been practicing with this tatted 'swatch' of edging
that I found in this book from Annie's Attic:
I knew this edging would look so splendid on the pillowcase.
So I tatted & tatted & tatted inches and inches of pink edging for this pillow; attached it by hand-sewing it with needle & thread right to the very edge of the pillowcase.
Such a lovely treasure.
