Clothesline Madness

 Recently we held our semi-annual Camp Stitchee Gume.  This time we focused our razor-sharp minds on clothesline projects.  The bowl above is sitting on the fabric used to wrap the clothesline. 
 2 beautiful bowls and a trivet. 

 This tote needed 200 feet of wrapped clothesline!
 This basket combines wrapped and dyed clothesline. 

My mom worked and worked to make this lovely placemat.  If my dad spills on it, he's toast! 
These items are made with dyed clothesline. 

This was made to hold a large casserole dish.

  This placemat was made with 2 strands. 
It is hard to predict the results of dyeing,  The clothesline for these 2 trivets were different brands - but the dye was the same! 
Here is some more clothesline - awaiting it's fate!
