Today’s news is a quick update about Linen. It is here! And oh so lovely. It makes me want to open the remaining packaging and get started on that linen ecclesiastical sewing project right now.
There is a nice variety of linens that arrived, all of which are suitable for use in making altar linens. The variety includes various weights from a cambric weight, suitable for those who want a light sheer linen for use in making veils for the altar, to a very fine linen that is oh so lovely for fine needlework. Another linen is intended for use in making the traditional linen alb, for which I will be creating a pattern soon. Others have the perfect size yarn which is ideal for hemstitching. Not enough variety, you say? How about some variety in widths: starting at 54 in widths, there is a 60 inch, 71 inch , and even a 120 inch wide linen.
But that is not the only package with linen to arrive today. The other package of linen contains something very old, but still very lovely. The photos of this gem will have to wait until a new larger slant board is ready for photography.
Solo Dei Gloria
