Many moons ago I spotted an E-Bay Seller selling a bulk lot of antique bedlinen for cutting up for craft.
The were a German immigrants trousseau from the Barossa Valley and all handmade . O...M....G....CUTTERS!!!! I could see they were stunning ...and I had to rescue them from the scissors and amazingly I got them for a small amount.
This is a couple of them...2 covers for eiderdowns, and the cotton lawn is the silkiest most beautiful I have in my collection. The monograming is stunning( and very little damage anyway)
I was thrilled to own them . Needless to say I have checked the sellers item every week and picked up a few more nice collectable pieces over the years
