Monday's thrift store finds...

The best find was the blue indigo dress that is ankle length (lots of fabric) and looks like it's never been worn. The dress actually fits me but I'll make much more use out of a blouse and want the rest of the fabric to use in cloth pieces, so I'll cut it down and lengthen the sleeves and the rest will be fabric to play with. Amazingly it was half off so it cost me $5. Off to wash today's finds.

Indigo dress, woven satchel, linen napkins

Wowee Deanna - what a bundle of joy that is for you. Also I want to say how much joy your dragonfly and butterfly photos gave me - and continue to - you take good photo, but it is more - they remind me of how I imagine you to be. Oh, and also - great idea to make a swag for your little neighbour. Gilly

Gorgeous Deanna, it's Shibori indigo dyed too. Op-shop is my number place to search for what I need before I get anything new - Thanks for sharing and have fun playing with the dress - Hugs Nat
