My local charity shop used to have a basket full of doilies, of all shapes and sizes, for 20p each. When I thought up some ideas for making use of them a few months ago and went to stock up, the basket was gone, and a rather... direct, shall we say, lady informed me that they hadn't been selling, so they had been 'moved on'. One heartbroken Anna.
A couple of weeks ago, much to my surprise, the basket returned! The contents were different, but this time I was determined to show there was demand and I snapped up a large pile of the beauties. Finally, I've got round to customising some clothes in need of sprucing up.
I'm afraid it wasn't really the weather for frolicking around outdoors without a coat on (and hat, and gloves...) so I don't think I've shown the skirt in the best light, it being more of an outfit for a mild spring day. Anyway, my customising took me one Creatives Unite session and hey presto, there's life in these threads yet.
What do you use doilies for?
