    I went by the thrift store today and found some shear-see through material. It's not what you would use for curtains, however it could be used in a bridal veil.
    I don't know what it is, but it's very pretty, silvery snow white, and new looking.
    I bought it because it was 1.99 and I thought about embroidering delicate butterflies, and 3D roses for my quilt.
    I thought there was about 2 yards because it was rolled up and taped, but now find out there is 7 yards. What else can I make out of the other 5 yards? Any ideas?

    I use long strips of bridal tulle to tuck in or wrap around and through the empty spots in between sections of my artificial
    Chr. tree. With the white LED lights it gives it a heavenly look to the entire tree. I use lots of snowflakes and feathers for decorations..
