This is another posting of how I use lace. This is my the top of my bedroom dresser. It is a lovely dark-colored wood that was just begging to have lace put upon it! So I did just that, covering the lace with a custom-cut piece of glass. Now the surface is still functional….I can spill and put stuff all over it and still my lace is beautiful.
The pieces seen in this view are: 4 tatted pieces (tatted by me); Teneriffe Lace (2)-upper left and right, Romanian Point Lace, the swan is a piece of Carrickmacross Lace (designed and worked by me), the circular piece is bobbin lace that a friend brought back to me from Belgium while on vacation.
