Got my frabric but...

I'm so disappointed. I just received the fabric I ordered online with which I was going to make handkerchiefs. It's a light linen/cotton blend fabric in a bone color. I was not expecting white but rather a light cream, turns out it's more of a taupe. Now what..
I'll have to put my creative thinking cap on because I have 4 yards to use. Maybe a tablecloth and napkins..

The fabric feels really lovely so maybe a garment of some sort??

Can't wait to see what you make. Can you dye it at all for the hankerchiefs? What about if you still make hankies and emboidered them with some pretty mauve or purple flowers?

Hi, Margaret--thank you so much for writing. I really like the Waltons, too. I don't think it's corny--it's one of my favorites, too. I grew up watching it, and we have several tapes of it now that we watch occasionally. My favorites are when Grandpa Walton is on there, and when the kids are younger. My husband and son both like the Beverly Hillbillies. I think Granny is pretty funny, and I like hearing all the crazy recipes she comes up with, like "Coot Cobbler!" Don't think I'd want any of that. Although, I don't really know what a "coot" is (?) :-) Thank you for visiting me!!!
