Wordless Wednesday: Week 13



Focus on the fabric. Not the basket. The time period involved would be during the Revolutionary War.
Now, guess away, guess away, guess away all!
Last week's explanation can be found here.
THE EXPLANATION FOR THE ABOVE PICTURE CAN BE FOUND HERE!!!!!!!

When I look at this picture with my painter eyes, I only see a combination of a basket and half opened lips, it could be modern art, lol !

I guess because it's today, I have my mind on Ash Wednesday and Lent. Violet is the color of the season.

Let me meditate more on this!

I like the photo, really interesting. I am stumped, but I would guess, if I am going to throw a wild guess out there..what about mosquito netting?

Looks like a type of gauze, but too colorful and fancy.
Will have to check back for the answer.
Happy WW!!

Hmmm not sure but the sheerness of the fabric almost seems impossible for the era to me!!

Hugs,

Hmmm most mosquito cloths were simple white, but not all. Looks like a thin muslin or linen...I've seen templates for flag making that look like that, but the color is not right. There ceratinly were thin coverings for women and baby cradles similar in look...I don't know! Cool challenge.

After due consideration I could only think of the embargo we had on British goods during the revolution and this was a homemade cotton/linen cloth colored with vegetable dye (beets?).
