Lace - which I found

Look - look - something very beautiful!

 

 

 

Now tell me - isn't this fantastic? I found it at a village sale - really small village
They call it "vide Grenier" - which means "empty attic". This must have come
from an attic of a very talented or rich lady. It is entirely hand made.
The piece is square - about 40 cm.
I washed it very carefully and it is drying now.
When I bought it for about 2,50$ i.e. 2 € I had in mind to cut it apart and use it
for applique or something like this - for pillows and pages (Karen Ruane) or
similar

  4. How absolutely exquisite, Anneliese! I would not be able to bear to cut it up! I would just stare at it and touch it reverently and keep it to remember some lady of days gone by who was a very talented needlewoman! A WONDERFUL find! Enjoy:-)
