I have a lot of work to do over break. I'm putting together an application for a future endeavor, I have some pieces that need finishing, and a few personal projects that I'd like to get finished.
Recently I went for a walkabout of a local antique mall. I came home with some goodies.
A few reference books for textiles and two huck embroidered towels. I've never seen huck towels before, but I'm familiar with the weave structure. I love these towels and I left two others behind. Until the other day that is, when I went back to get them. I was wandering about and a vendor looked over my shoulder and asked me about them. She had just brought in a needle kit with patterns for huck towels. She showed the kit to me and we chatted for a bit. I love chance encounters like this and of course I bought the kit home with me. There are a few unfinished towels inside, fabric, needles, floss and two pattern books copyright 1936!
Guess what else I'll be doing over break?
