I pulled out a piece of linen to use for a project and the color was Peddler’s Blend but it didn’t have the name of the dyer on it. I knew that it came from Kitten Stitcher so I did a bit of sleuthing and found that it was dyed by Dames of the Needle so I contacted them, wrote to them and asked if they would dye a whole yard of 40 count for me.
It arrived yesterday. I spread it out in the floor (when Oscar wasn’t in the room) and I couldn’t stop looking at it. I should be able to use five or six pieces of this linen and have them all look different.
This is the kind of linen I love to buy, and what I was hoping to get when I ordered those yards of Duxbury.
These mottled pieces aren’t always easy to use. I’ll have to find the perfect chart for this busy, splotchy print but it’s one of those things that if I hadn’t got it, I’d find the perfect chart for it and be forever wishing I had bought it . . like that purple dress I didn’t buy 40 years ago, went back to get and it was gone and I still think about it! 🙂
