cloth collage for Mrs. Moen's tcc

Today is June 1 and this is the result of my cloth collage for Mrs. Moen's table cloth challenge.
Using an embroidered tablecloth as a base, I added vintage nine-patch blocks, crocheted doilies, yo-yos, bits of fabric, beads and buttons.

I like it!!

You are such an inspiration in the way you incorporate "found" items in your work. Over the weekend I stopped at a couple of Estate Sales and picked up bits and pieces.

If only I'd also found some inspiration. Oh wait! I have your blog! Thank you!! :)
