Encouraged by the first lace sample, I’m now trying it with patchwork. Same technique, sandwiching it between fine chiffon, and piecing over paper:
These look more opaque than they are because you’re seing them here with white paper behind the sheer chiffon and lace. I’m hoping that when they’ve been pieced together and the paper removed, they should become more translucent. I’ve also cut up some of the lace for a small cloth:
This is a hand-dyed vintage napkin, about 10″ square, again with sheer chiffon covering the lace. Elderly fabric has such a gentle energy, and it is slowing me down very nicely.
Enjoy your weekend.
