Busman’s Holiday

I am experimenting with openwork hems. They make me nervous because I worry that I am weakening the fabric, but since sheets with this finish have survived many years, I am probably wrong.

I like the simplest treatment, but look at this page to see how quickly it can run away with you: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/20776/20776-h/chapter_3.html
that stuff is nerve-wracking.

    I have always wanted to do a hemstitch. It’s just such a lovely finish to napkins, bedskirts and tablecloths. Someday…when I have time!
