Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable
~ if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things. ~Phil 4:8

This is a rescue that needed to happen. An friend, who is an antique dealer, found seven chairs in barn (yes, a barn!) She rescued the chairs but discarded the needlepoint seats. I found the needlepoints in her dust bin, and I rescued them. I washed them, dry cleaned them, and then (because I dislike the dry-cleaning fluid smell,) I washed them again.
They still have stains from the time they were loving used and not so lovingly stored. The background has become a heathery mix of discolored ivory wool. They wear their patina well.
