… is another’s treasure. So the saying goes. In this case one man’s torn shirt is another woman’s stash addition. My husband tore his shirt the other day.

It was a shame because it was a lovely hemp shirt that had been washed and ironed so many times as to be soft and supple and really lovely. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen hemp fabric but the good quality ones can be as good as fine linen. So when he sadly showed me his torn shirt I immediately looked on the bright side and added it to the stash of old linens I am collecting to make another Wabi Sabi style recycled quilt.
