Top photo:
Konrode, the mill and farm where my father grew up. The family harvested their own flax, processed, spun and wove it into linen. The photo was taken in the 50s during a period when the property was barely used. It has been restored since.

Middle photo:
Yardage of the original linen woven at Konrode in the late 1800s to early 1900s.

Bottom photo:
Detail of a handwoven linen pillow case from my great-grandmother, cross-stitched with her initials.

I just wanted to make a few changes to my blog layout and messed up, so bad that it was easier to just let the old content go and start over.

Currently working on painted and printed unbleached cotton tops, some dyed with tea.
