Anyway, look at this! I didn't pay $5.99 for 10 yards of Irish linen. I paid just $5.00!
Thanks, Lovella, for checking my "this will shrink" picture day before yesterday. Want to try this one? ☺
My aunt knows a bargain when she sees one! I also picked up this little piece below.
When we had all piled back in the car with the men in the front and we gals in the back, my aunt asked me what that piece was called. I told her that it was filet *
embroidery crochet. She said that it was not. What is this? A test? I thought. "Pulled threads," she said. Then, a moment later, "It's hardanger." Ohhhh, I got it, she was trying to think of the word and hoping that I could fill in the blank.
*Hardanger* is not a term that I was familiar with. But now that I've cleaned my kitchen and found it again (don't ask), I can show you a comparison between hardanger (har-dang-er) and filet *

The top piece is the hardanger and the bottom filet *
So I learned two things if I can remember them. Hardanger is pulled* (counted?) threads and if I shut up, I might learn something.
It's been so hot here the past two days...
How hot is it?
With all due apologies to all of you who've been sweltering for forever.
I was visiting Carol at Serendipity where she was discussing taking pictures of food. She was wondering if she'd gone too far with her photography. I don't think so, but then I don't live at her house. Anyway, I decided then and there to take a photo of some food and since I had cleaned the kitchen and the dining room and found my hardanger—don't ask—
Grab a peach and have a delightful day...
* Pardon my confusion.
