Your Source for Beauty




Can you guess what this is? It is made of straw and houses one of your favorite fibers. This is an old silk cocoon bed for silkworms that was on display at the Silk Experience exhibit at the IQF show in Houston.


Just think. These little silk cocoons will soon become beautiful silk fabric and thread. Isn't mother nature amazing!

Great image! I thought it was an art quilt with tree trunks and sky from a distance.

I have some cocoons in my mixed media stash here - some open, some closed. They are so pretty and delicate that I hate to use them, ya know?

One of these days tho.............
