linen, linen and more lovely linen

I received this linen as a Christmas gift. I plan to make pillowcases out of it soon. I want to do the pebble with the asphalt as trim and asphalt with the pebble trim. Maybe I'll do a third set with the aluminum. I will pair them up with some blindingly white not too soft cotton sheets.

handmade linen pillowcases

I think linen pillowcases are the best affordable luxury money can buy. They feel especially great in the summer. They always feel a little cool. These are to be a Christmas gift for my mother.
