A Bit of This and a Bit of That

Some time ago one of the ladies from our Sweet Peas quilting group gave me a box containing oddments of lace and included was this lovely little piece of vintage embroidered lace. It measured just 8cm (3.5inches).

Not much to be done with a piece of lace that size, I guess but I did think it might be nice, incorporated into one of my miniature one of a kind embroidery pieces.

Today I finished the piece - lovely soft pink silk dupioni for the background and bits and pieces of silk ribbon and thread.

So nice to think that a little bit of left over vintage lace could be repurposed into a new work or art.

I have just listed it on Trade Me.
