Lace is Always Lovely

For anyone who loves lace as much as I do, I wanted to delight you with this piece of lace that is made up of many smaller pieces of lace -- a lace collage, if you will -- by another lace lover!

Each piece was carefully planned and executed...

Combining the antique with the merely vintage...


Salvaging the prettiest details...


Arranged to please both the geometric and the aesthetic eye...


It is the perfect size to cover my cedar chest, under the window in the master bedroom.

This is beautiful, Laurie! I've always loved the lacey look from lace and crochet. My mom used to sit and crochet for hours on end, even in the car when she traveled with my dad to out of town football games to see my brothers play. I have a love of lace and sweet memories too!

Very beautiful- what a good use of bits! Nice job also- no visable seams- that is admirable!
