Now tell me!
Just what girl doesn't love old lace?
I know that I have always been addicted to such
so I decided to pull some out of my stash
to create a book full of some of the most
gorgeous laces I have
and put it
The pages are all made from a wool wadding mix
(rather like felt)
which I have dyed.
Each page has been heavily layered and collaged
with doilies, some dyed,
as well as dyed cheesecloth
(using my silk dyes)
and, if you look closely, you can see some dyed raw silk
And some of this most beautiful vintage lace came from
So many beautiful vintage laces and medallions
one of which I used on the front cover
Inside back cover looks a bit like this:
And this shows the sum total of 12 pages
So if you can't resist beautiful laces and doilies,
dyed and stitched raw silk, dyed cheesecloth,
mop buttons and embellishments
then go and visit
my Etsy Shop
I was thinking what a lovely idea for a giveaway
but no promises (not yet anway!!!)

Have a cosy weekend enjoying
