Jabara Hand Embroidery for Friday

Friday's Find
These lovely linen towels have beautiful handwork
on the bottom edge.
I can still see the pencil markings of the pattern
on the top towel pictured above.

This lucky find still has the original tags!

These towels sold soon after posting
in my Etsy shop
On a more personal note --
My family and I have embarked on our school year adventure.  This year we're returning to homeschooling after four years at a private school.  This transition is going to take some time for us all.  I know that many of you are also homeschooling.  Any words of wisdom you would like to share? 
Enjoy your weekend.


  1. Hello dear Amy! I always enjoy the linens that you share! I wanted to stop by and thank you for all your kind words on my recent post. I sure am missing my blog and my blog buddies! I figured I would try to stroll around blog land a little today and visit some of my favorite friends! I see you will be home schooling. You are much braver than I am, I do have my children in some great Charter Schools! I really enjoyed your fair visit. The Colorado State Fair just began yesterday. It is about 65 miles from my house. I can not drive right now, and walking is difficult. So I am a little bummed to miss out on this, your pics made me happy!
    God bless you,

  2. Hi Amy! I think your VINTAGE WHITE LINENS are beautiful! I LOVE LINENS~~~Also, GOOD for you in HOMESCHOOLING your children! There is a lot of negative from the worlds perspective but I ADMIRE any mother/father for HOMESCHOOLING their children! I have never homeschooled, but I knew mothers who did (I worked in a family business-fulltime) Every Mother knows her child and his strong/weak points and can teach them to their ability! I pray GOD will direct you and BLESS your family! From one sweetie to another~~~Roxie
