For reasons unknown lately I have come across an extraordinary amount of vintage lace in the op shop. I found a table cloth that I suspect is handmade (but don’t know enough about lacing to be sure), in perfect condition apart from a great burn hole. This is when I would like to thank the person who still gave it to an op shop rather than just throwing it away as useless, because there is likely someone out there who would like to make something out of it. I made a cushion for a teenage family members birthday gift, and some wallets for my shop.

    I love that you find ways to reuse these treasures! I love thrift shops and projects that reuse and recycle old treasures! Seeing your projects is very inspiring!
