Yesterday's Garage sale find, for me, was this lovely old handmade lace!
I just love it, & couldnt believe my luck. I got it for $1, & it was brown with dirt. I have soaked it in a Nappy soaker, & discovered it is almost white. It has 3 small rust spots, but there is a product to remove that, so it will be perfect for a Doll or maybe even a Teddy.
Isnt it exquisite? I also got some handmade edging lace as well as some entreduex?(sp) which was also very dirty, but has come up nicely with a soaking.
I just laid it over this piece of jade coloured fabric, which is earmarked for a dress for a doll called Jade, who has remained in underwear only, for far too long!
I suppose I should have ironed the fabric before showing the lace!
This next pic is our two dogs, Waiting for GOM at the top of the stairs, which they tend to do, if he goes off on his own.
We are now officially onto Daylight Saving- thank goodness. Leo got me up at 10 to 6 this moring, instead of 10 to 5am Haha!
And here are two of Nice Neighbour's lovely little pot gardens.
You could almost believe in fairies, looking at some of her gardens. Mr Nice Neighbour makes the lovely little bridges for the gardens.
I have been enjoying myself having a cruise around some of the lovely blogs I like to read. I have to remind myself to stop having so much fun!! And get on with some sewing or even ... housework.
It is nice & cool this morning, so no real excuse for not getting onto the sewing!
