|From Craftsman Magazine, May 1910.|
Today, we received a large order of linen for this project. Several months ago, Sharon calculated how much fabric she would need for all these windows (it was 28 yards!), but she didn't get around to ordering until last week, when she got an email saying the linen was on sale. So, last week she ordered 30 yards from Fabrics-store.com.
She ended up choosing a medium weight linen in a very pale yellow color, called Krista Natural. She didn't like the bleached, it was way too white, and the natural (unbleached) colors were all too dark, so she compromised and got one that was probably bleached and then colored. Here is the linen next to a piece of white.
Sharon also bought some remnants to practice the stenciling and embroidery by making throw pillows.
