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.
