Lace, dye, motifs, giveaway
Here's a photo of my 1st attempt at dyeing with tea. Must remember next time to make some notes. I used a herbal blend and several tea bags but don't know the details. Shari has given me some good advice on dyeing and I hope to experiment this weekend. The original lace is on the right. It is not white or cream and after the tea bath it is still not beautiful but at least better. This photo of machine lace just screams to be a motif. See how easily it could be cut apart? How would I embellish it? Any suggestions? In the second lace strip I see two different motifs as shown at the side. There are fans hiding in one row and butterflies in between or are they flowers?? Of this border I have several strips between 1/2 yard to almost a yard in length. For postage costs I'll send a strip. Email me. Remember to include a suggestion for embellishment!
