I popped into my local thrift store today and found a bag of doilies for $3. I wasn't sure how many were in there, or what condition they were in, but I can use even damaged textiles in my work. So I bought the bag.
Imagine my excitement to find 12 doilies, in perfect condition!
At first I felt a little sad that each piece of handwork, lovingly made by an unknown woman, had sold for 25 cents each. But I feel happy again knowing that I am not merely collecting these to sit in a drawer. They will be added to
crazy quilt blocks, jean jackets and other wearable art.
