Doing Laundry

During this break between semesters i had planned to do all sorts of catch-up things - the list is long!
But, instead, I find myself either immersed in a book or doing laundry.
I am laundering my collection of domestic linens and I am finding it calming.

This is an expertly knit doilie. i should have taken the 'before' photo because it was a stained rag that looked as though the dog had played with it. I soaked and washed it so all stains came out. Then blocked it so it grew another 3rd in size.

And here it is returned to its true beauty.

Now onto transforming some worn, stained, hand-made damask towels a friend picked up for me.
