I needed to clean those blinds in my quilt room. They were like, caked with fibers and dust. And dog hair I am sure. That is the window the Boyz fight over. So I got some Lysol all purpose cleaner that kills 99.9% of whatever it comes into contact with, and sprayed that sucker down!
It actually cleaned Up pretty nicely. There was a box at the bottom of the window in the corner I hadn't noticed lately. When I stuck my hand in there I came up with this amazing find. I think it will be perfect for the Zentangle Lady.
What do you think?
It is handmade, most likely linen. There is no tag on it so I'm not sure who made it but I think it might have come from a bunch of stuff my cousin gave me from her mother. It could be something Aunt Evelyn bought on one of their travels.
I do remember my Danish grandmother forcing me to sit down and do this cut work stitching where are you pulled the threads on a linen handkerchief and then went back and caught the threads in interesting patterns. The tablecloth/runner does have this on it. But I'm not sure my grandmother would've been someone who did this.
I have to ask my cousin what she remembers of it.
But first I think I'll wow her with it in this Lady piece. She needs nice Spanish lady's name.
Oh, I know.........Ana Sophia, La Duena del Poeta
Ohhh, bad, bad girl! Maybe that is why she is glancing around so guilty looking and all.
Now I need a love poem.......
