Vintage Friday

I finished this vintage candlewicking project earlier this week. It went very fast, one morning to do the knots and another to add the trim. When I made my first candlewicking project in the 1980's I didn't like doing the knots. I think I made one pillow and that was enough for me. Recently I found several  kits at thrift stores and gave it another try. I enjoyed doing this small kit and have plans to make a few more things. My grandma loved doing candlewicking and even made a bedspread. I have a couple unfinished Christmas projects that belonged to her and hope to get them done this year.

I love this. I can remember the bedspread that Grandma made and the pillows with blue knots.

Brings back a lot of memories.
