china silk scarves, thrift store finds & old lace

A trip to the thrift shops on Monday was made, and I found a few goodies to add to my bounty that is now over-running the dining room table, waiting for my new creative space to open up. (in other words, waiting for my son to move out in less than two weeks!)

A large bag of tapestry and crewel wools. Caught my eye for the amount of blue skeins, as I have a vision of something I want to try very soon.

Three little handmade doilies...

A few snipets of cotton lace...

More silk tie dyeing experiments, this time on china silk scarves.  I still intend on laying down some stitching on these, letting it develop organically as I go. 

Tomorrow will bring a walk in the woods, and hopefully some images to share here. It has been so hot. I have not been on a walk about in awhile. I am feeling rather disconnected and needing some "green" time.
