To use or not to use....that is the question....
I was given a set of my maternal grandmothers pillowcases. She embroidered them herself and they are wonderful. Grandma Bernice was a seamstress. She could take two patterns and make one Prom dress. She made all of my Homecomeing outfits, from wool shorts (with knee socks no less!!) to wool blazers, skirts etc.. One year she made me two skirts, two pairs of shorts,wool lined pants and one blazer and they all coordinated. I was pretty stylish back then, at least for the 2 days of Homecoming...lol She passed away a few years ago and I wish I would have spent more time watching her sew when I visited. When she passed, my grandfather gave me quite a few of her sewing items.
When I changed the sheets yesterday, I put these on my bed. My room is grass green and white so these match perfectly. Now I want to take them off and put them back into the closet. I don't want us sleeping on them. I want to keep them nice and crisp. But what good will they do there? I can't see them in my closet.
I love vintage linens. I use a cloth tablecloth every night. They are all from the 50's. Most are red and white, some have a bit of yellow or black in them. I have three just for Christmas. Most of them I get from ebay, some came from auctions that my hubby and I used to go to before we moved. I have about 6 or 7 that are rotated as they get dirty.
SO....my question?? What do I do with the pillowcases? Do I keep them on the bed or put them back into the closet?
Happy sewing day!!
