Today I had a quick trip to some op shops and picked up these treasures from the Salvos in Tyabb Road
Beautiful hand made and embroidered doileys: especially love the cross stitch Christmas one.
They also had lots of pieces that had been commenced but not completed.
It is difficult to take a good photo of these.
This one looks particularly interesting.
I cannot help wondering who started these pieces.
Of course I had to have these gorgeous hankies. Some of them have exquisite fine lace while others are beautifully embroidered.
In addition to these lovely things I managed to find some other bargains while I was out. Some mirrors for downstairs, a dolls house for the twins (for their second birthday) and a small weaving loom. These items are still in the car but I will photograph them some time.
I am beginning to accumulate lots of stuff so some will find their way to ebay eventually to make room for the things I most want to keep. Selling the occasional item on ebay means I can buy some more things for my textile adventures. Win Win.
