mending and repurposing

the flag at a "bit of earth" had torn and frayed.
a few rows of the zig zag stitch, and, presto!
waving proudly, once again.

beautiful kitchen towels, out of the drawer
and now decorating the wall in the guest room.
gretta's beets have found their perfect home.

old, high loft batting+muslin pillowslip=insert
for a repurposed tote bag/small hammock pillow.
cut the tote handles, hem them and they become tie ons.
it was 55 degrees in the breezeway this morning,
with heavy clouds...not exactly hammock weather.
but the forecast is for mid nineties and humid this weekend.
hey, it's new england...


  1. Oh, I don't know, this is my favorite kind of hammock weather! I drag my flannel-wrapped down comforter out with me and presto...instant cocoon!

  2. Feelin' that Vermont vibe here! What a wonderful place to hide out.

  3. i love the tote bag turned pillow idea and the dishtowel wall hangings!

  4. oooooooooooooooooooooooooh, I have towel envy. Those are DIVINE. Love the beets too and the other repurposed, mended things. Lovely.
