Old and New Lace

I was glad to get a new order to cover a
pram with French Lace and Silk,
layers and layers of lace.
It is such a pleasure to work with
these lovely materials.

I'm half way done and once finished 
I'll make more pictures.

In an antique shop in Strasbourg I found this 
beautiful table runner and it had to be mine!

The handwork that went into making this 
runner is amazing, so many different knots and stitches.

There are tiny rusty coloured stains 
on it, but I can live with that.

My daughter with her perfect command 
of French got the price down to 30 Euro,
lucky me!


Almost time

Time to ring in the New Year..


Today I'll be joining in with Cindy at
