Guest photo of an old face

Oh dear I've been trying to make this more tasteful lately but this newly-submitted photograph will put an end to that.

I enjoy referring to this as my personal newspaper (which shows my age). People who submit things for use in newspapers are called stringers (history lesson). Stringer Carol Jones took this picture on her iphone yesterday at stitch group and isn't it unique. Terry Thompson and I compete to buy these face potholders. Terry just snagged this one in Hutchinson.

It is one of the older ones I have seen. The very observant B Brackman noted it had to be after 1920 because of the colored thread.

We would hesitate to call it a beauty but I thought you might enjoy seeing it for yourself.


  1. I've never seen anything like this before! I love seeing all the photos of vintage quilts etc. you post.

  2. Love, love love it...and never heard of face potholders before. I enjoy your blog and check in daily to see what you've been up to.
