Wow! Thank you Maude Belle! How are you familiar with this material???
I was thinking the same Barbra Broidy! But.. still not sure that’s really what the rectangular pieces were used for...
Beautiful- making your Odín curtains! Sounds like you know how to sewEleanor Kruselll- I so admire those skills and know how! Despite my last, Singer (and no relation by the way) I was never good on the sewing machine. Did you sew by hand or machine?
Love hearing about your mom Suzanne Redmond! Such great memories - and thx for sharing how the rings were “intended” to be used!
Awesome Suzanne Redmond! Juicy tip- ha!!! Thank U!!!!
I think someone’s been shopping at Resource Depot. The round white piece with a whole in the center and cutout spoke like things is a piece from an Oster orange juicer. Another piece fits on top and you press a cut orange on that and the juice goes through the slats, filtering out the pits.
The white rings are from a sewing store. You can use them for curtain tie backs or sew to the top of a quilt so you can hang it on the wall. My mom was a great seamstress and used these all the time.
The flat pieces with the large hole in them look like wall plates that would be used for openings such as a central vacuum system.
The sticks are from an edible arrangement.
We utilized the rings on top of curtains we made and then slide them through a thin brass rod.

Thinking a lot about my mom these past few days as I received some great news (stay tuned) and I really wish she was around so I could pick up the phone to share the honor with her. I know you all understand that experience, when our beloveds have passed on. You see, Zena was an artist, working in diverse media. Her business was named Z-Art. I love to tell the story that a former public garden colleague of mine called me “The Fruit of Zart” - and I am. Yesterday I spent a lot of time in my studio gazing upon this long stitch piece Z did, longing...I love it because she created it, the imagery, the trees, the garden. Tears of joy mix with tears of sorrow. ... See MoreSee Less
