Seeing through

The little lace patchwork piece now has a background to support it.  These are all tiny fragments of modern lace, but lace often seems to retain a kind of timelessness so that you can’t always tell how old it is just by looking.  I stitched it to a piece of silk organza:

I added a couched edge, using a textured white yarn.  I’m not sure what this will be when it grows up, but it looks kind of pretty so far.  I may sandwich it between two other cloths and cut out the central square so that it remains transparent.

    Very pretty as it is even in its infancy.

    Lovely – I like how the plains give added impact to the lace.

    this would be lovely hung in a window to let the varying transparencies have their say.
