I used this quilt in the bedroom as a design wall about a year ago. Everything came down after a few months -- but the other day, something caught my eye. Do you see it? It blended in so nicely and I never missed it, not once. Forgot.
Along those same lines -- with the good weather, I've been puttering around the garden, cleaning up and planting -- and came across this bundle made up last summer when we were still eating cantaloupe. It had been outside all winter. Forgot. But I found the photo I took when I first rolled it up. Now washed and ironed, the unmordanted white linen has a pair of wings, if you look hard enough. ;-)
Good surprises, both. Don't you love it when that happens?
