Estate Sale killings

My Friday estate sale excapades continue to reap great rewards! This week it was tatting and crochet threads, scraps of yarn good for embellishing, and a lovely cross-stitched cluctch purse that i get to finish for the nice lady who left it for me (another needlepoint rescue). They sold it to me for a criminal price - $1.50. Shame on them - they obviously don't know the work involved in these works of art. I am thrilled to have it though. .

Connie, you could have a lot of fun with those white and off white threads with a little food coloring; variegating colors you can't find in shops is great fun. My daughter made a rainbow skein for me that I thought I'd never use, but I actually found a use for it almost immediately.
You always find the best estate sales!!!!!!
