Steps to Clean the Print: Begin by going over the painting with the soft bristled brush to remove any loose dirt and dust. If there is dirt that cannot be brushed away, there is an easy cleaning method that works well on oil paintings and will also work for prints. Take the piece outdoors and spread it out over a tarp or other protective layer to keep any moisture from the ground away from the print. Take a slice of the bread and remove the crust. Use the soft inside portion to gently rub over the surface of the print. As you are rubbing, you will notice the dirt and soil from the picture sticking to the bread.

GRAINSACK VINTAGE HEMP linen grain sack red blue heavy rustic primitive – $ ~*~Hello and thank you for looking~*~ This lovely hand woven grainsack from Europe dates from the late ‘s ~ ~A lovely thick, heavy sack with super nubby surface! the tone is a warm, darker natural toned ground and the stripes are variations in reds/ orange and blue~ *~~ a wonderful textile.

I used my s feed sack dress as an inspiration. The maker used bias tape and two types of salvaged lace as decoration. I laid the dress out and carefully took measurements from it, and drafted a pattern from that. The feed sack dress was made with one flat piece of fabric in the back, from the shoulders to the hemline. But more than that, this piece was folded over the shoulders, so there was no shoulder seam.

At the front dropped waistline, the flat fabric was trimmed away and replaced with a wider piece of fabric, gathered to make a fuller skirt — but only in the front. I went to the garment district and picked up some nice s-looking cotton prints and some solid cottons. I also sacrificed one of my bed sheets to use for scrap. The first dress I made was made from the bed sheet, a little white linen I had from other projects, and a handful of vintage buttons.

Halfway through the dress I decided I liked it and would make it wearable. I wound up liking this one the most. Cut it a bit longer than the length from your shoulders to your knees. I cut the armholes by eyeballing them, then trying the dress on after I had cut the neck hole and trimming them down.

The Great Depression

Susan, whose blogs at, My Place to Yours , loves finding old linens that appear ruined and ready for the trash heap…and saving them…restoring them to their original state. Have you ever wondered if and how this could be done with stained vintage linens? Recently, I came across an old Bates bedspread box. My heart stopped… could it be? Would I be so lucky as to find a beautiful old matelasse spread inside? And if I did, what would its condition be?

My adventures in Quilting and Gardening Quilt Buyer Beware For those of you who like to buy quilts at on-line auctions I thought I would give a bit of advice. There are many quilts out there that are reproduction quilts. There is nothing wrong with a reproduction quilt as long as the buyer knows that is what they are buying. They are machine pieced and hand quilted. If you are looking for a quilt for every day use these quilts are a good option.

If you are looking to buy a quilt for vintage or antique value pass on reproductions. This should be required reading for anyone interested in antique and vintage quilts and http:

Many jazz bands were lead by a band leader: Bluegrass and Country Music: Very popular during this era, though only in the USA. Delta Blues music was very prominent in the USA, with Robert Johnson as the most iconic example, but would only get extraordinarily popular in the s. Just like the s jazz was still enormously popular worldwide. It got a bigger explosion when swing came around to cut the rug.

Scout July 13, Comments After the seven hour Interstate drive the previous day, I woke up Saturday dreading the thought of hitting the bland four-lane pavement for another long haul. Well, we had no choice. Our plan was to meet up with Route 50 at the Indiana border, so we sucked it up and bolted across Ohio in about 4 hours or so. About the only thing of note: They had a small electronic scale, and some sort of meter with a probe attachment, and were carefully going over a bunch of somethings in a little plastic bag.

But Spring Break and a beach wedding 5 hours from home put crimp in my blogging. So I decided not stress about it, especially since the all important Florida State Assessment starts next week. Although it would have been better if I had sewn something from my actual stash. Because this is what it looks like right now.

The realization that indigestible seeds could be ground into nourishing dust steered the history and fate of man in a new direction. Without the invention of the grinding stone there would be no bread or buns, no pasta or pizza, no cakes or couscous. Probably there would be fewer people on our planet. Certainly there would be no civilization as we know it. And the wheel, originally an aid to agriculture, would presumably never have been invented.

Flour has become the daily food of millions. But we would be wrong to take it for granted. The history of flour is one of brilliant innovation and growing prosperity, but also of famine and hardship. Cereals, flour and bread are inseparably bound up with human civilization: They left behind primitive sickles with flint blades:
