I thought we would have a Spring theme this week as its is coming up to Easter.
What with all the spring flowers about, the daffodils, the crocuses and the primroses. I've even got a tulip poking its head out in the garden. It inspired me to make this Spring Time Garland using vintage doilies, embroidered table mats, and lace.
First of all, I washed and then hand dyed the doilies
powder blue dye
then halved the doilies and cut the table mat into four
and stitched them to a long strip of fabric, evenly spaced apart. I then stitched the lemon lace trim on both sides so it is reversible and edged the ends with a big lemon bow.
heres the result ..........
not the best pics
but it was raining so I had to find
a suitable hanging place inside
I hope you like it, It has inspired me to make some more to put in the
shop so I will keep you posted on these in due course
I hope you are all having a good week.
