Lace


This is just a small post for my good friend Gina in Melbourne, Australia. In a note to her I said I wasn't posting all the lace I pick up because people are probably getting tired of seeing pieces of it. Unless I get something wonderful or a great stash of it I don't bother.


Well Gina said no she likes to see it all so this is what I picked up a couple of weeks ago Gina.


The crocheted top and white tatting were soaked and washed to get the grime out. The pink tatting is very pretty when not all tangled up. It needs a good wash then to be ironed but this pic just gives an idea.

Hey! Thanks Freda! See what happens? I am not the only one who likes to see ALL the laces and bits you find! I envy you those lengths of tatting - I've never found any tatting pieces in my travels. But some of the ladies in our guild are very clever tatters, and they have bags of it that they have done for practice, and are happy to give it to anyone looking for some trims.
