This month my sewing is going to revolve around lace. I’ve never worked with lace before (well, unless you count the racy lacy undies or the Christening gown I made for my niece, neither of which I think really exemplify what it means to work with lace), so you might be asking why now? Two words: MSN challenge. Actually, I guess that’s one word and one acronym. But, anyway, those ladies threw out the idea of us all sewing together with a unified theme, and after much hemming and hawing, that theme became lace.
So, here I am. Staring at my lace. Yes, the orange lace in the photo above. ”Orange?!” I know. I liked its thick texture, and I thought it would provide some fun color play. (I know you are all dying to work with orange lace alongside of me, but, sadly, Mood does not seem to have any more available.)
I’m going to do my best, but I’d love to hear from you – what are your secrets for working with lace? If you have tips and tricks to share or good books or resources on the subject, do share. Or, if you have questions of your own, let me know.
Okay, wish me luck!
