I love old, mended cloth too.
I still like Trigger's broom as a metaphor, but I'm not as classy as you!A beautiful sheet - what a life it must have had. I wonder, do we romanticise mending because it is no longer a necessity?
Beautiful post and I love the Bourgeois quote that you included.
Love old textiles too.
my grandmother used to tell me that is how she used to do with worn sheets... I wish I had some of her old stuff.
I saw these kind of mended bed linen at my grandmother's home. And even my mother used to do this some time ago. When everything at home had great value...
