Whoever bought this bedsheet first chose quality (well, the label says so!). There's something touching and thrifty and humble about the stitching across the top hem to strengthen a section worn by time and use. A different mindset to what you mostly see today, to mend and thus preserve the usefulness of the larger item. It's not particularly expert-looking stitching/mending, either - s/he might not have been quite sure of what to do, or particularly handy with a needle, but had enough determination (or need) to do something rather than let the whole sheet become torn and useless.
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
