Gettysbird

I love vintage linen tea towels. I usually buy them with Vera Neumann designs but now and then something else will catch my eye and I must have it.  Or sometimes I will buy a bundle of tea towels at a great price and end up with something odd.  This one came to me that way but honestly, how could I resist?

What I really liked was the lettering which is the Gettysburg Address. I thought it would like nice as a reverse applique piece. But the more I looked at it the more I knew I had to include Abe’s beautiful visage.  This is the result.  I like his little stovepipe hat.
