Tribute to Lacemakers

Making this by hand with pieces of vintage and antique lace, I wondered how many hands were really involved here...

  1. Hi Colette, I just came across your blog, everything looks so beautiful! I love old lace and handmade things, I always wonder the same. I love that someone else has spent hours making something so delicate and it's lasted so many years! I must go and look at your lovely creations in the etsy shop x Lilly

  3. Me too, I am a total sucker for white on white. That is one beautiful creation. In reference to your "Friday's Child" post, about the blessing of life being fluid and not static: one could say you've passed this blessing on to the vintage laces through your art.

  5. Handmade lace is something to behold..would women do that kind of intensive work today? I mean some of that bobbin lace would take weeks to do..
