I have been sewing this last few weeks. I combined a piece of crochet with one of my damaged linen sheets to make pillow cases.

The crocheted piece disguises a hole.

Here is a piece of 'chanvre' or hemp I used to cover a shade from a charity shop bought lamp. The light is obviously softened a lot. I will probably add more buttons and things and either patch the hole or I may wind hemp string around to band of metal and leave the hole.

I am also branching out into hand knitted finds and 
this rather splendid shawl was a great find. I think it's barely been worn

Here is a grain sack that I have sewn a long crochetted runner on.  I use it as a long cushion on the back of the sofa that is against a wall.
