Antique Lace

On my thrift outing that landed me the $585 bird cage for $5, I also came across a stash of this antique lace. At $2 for the lot, I couldn't resist. I much prefer rick rack or ball fringe, but I just know I'll find a use for these lovely trims.

Great old lace. I know it will come in handy. Nothing pretty, but I picked up some heat bond from the SA today for .50 and know what I will be using it for. Posted some pics over at my blog today. Have a great evening. Jackie

I bet you will. Lovely! You asked about the stain. I just use coffee (from the pot), mixed with vanilla and cinnamon and either brush it on the stitchery or soak the stitchery in it in a bowl, then bake it for a few minute at 250 or so. (you have to be sure to watch it, of course, or the edges can get crusty and I even heard of one that caught on fire. lol). Thanks for visiting my blog. :)
