Recycling Vintage Linens That Have Holes or Stains

The thrift store I buy my vintage linens from rolls them up and tapes them with packing tape. I hate it because I can't tell if they have stains or holes! (if it's a table cloth I take all the tape off and look at it before I will buy it) Anyway I've ended up with some flawed hand embroidered pillowcases. I couldn't just throw them away so I decided to make some sachet bags with the good sections.

Should I Give Up??

Okay, so you may have noticed that I haven't posted a picture of my wrap around skirt project. Well ... that's because I really can't find any fabric that I like for both sides of the skirt that coordinate well. The tie on the waistband will show with both sides of the reversible skirt. Maybe I should just give up and work on something else! (sighs)
