I Just Had to Play with My Goodie Bag

Yesterday I was given not one but two large bags full of beautiful gold raw silk made by James Hare, burgundy, ruby red, cream and baby blue slub silk and ooddles of beautiful cream and ivory lace. At the bottom of one of the bags I found a mountain of shoe clips. All this gorgeous treasure belonged to a friend of mine who ran her own bridal shop in the 80's and due to a house move decided that I was the one to receive the bounty. Whoo whoo am I the lucky one.









Yesterday I spent hours playing with all these goodies and my brain went into melt down and I could not decide what to make or even where to start, and with what, Shish! Today though has been a little better and I am trying to focus on one thing at a time. Meanwhile nothing else is getting done but I don't really care, housework can go take a hike for the moment.










So my first atttempt was these lace rosette shoe clips. Then I made a few pom pom type flowers out of the gold silk and finally a pair of chocolate bows which are perfect for a certain pair of shoes if I can only find them!


So, I wish you all a happy weekend and see you soon.
Me again just to let you see the lace ones:) Thanks Sue for showing me how to make these gorgeous little bows:)

What a lucky, lucky little duck you are!! That is definitely quite the bounty you've got there :)

I can totally relate to the whole overwhelmed thing-I have problems with my brain getting too overwhelmed that it just shuts down (like now when I'm supposed to be doing my homework O.o)

You made some extremely beautiful things so far though!! I can't wait to see what else you create from your bounty ^.^

Sue the pleasure was all mine belive me. I have just made a pair of the lace bows and off to find a trinket to add to them. :)

Quack Quack Kayla, eugh homework!!! I feel for you:) I think I just might send you a few little bits to play with. Can't think of any one sweeter to share them with.

OMG!!! I would have fainted if I was given such delights and I would also have spent hours going through this dream gift. You are so lucky. I love all the sweet things you have made but by far I love the bows. Mary
