Pearls and Lace #24 and the Giveaway Continues!

Lacey Goodness!
This is the first time I have ever tried to create anything like this with all of the gorgeous laces I have!  I finally decided (after getting my machine out of the closet, dusting it off, re-learning how to thread it, trying valiantly 10 times to get the bobbin placed correctly, and running a few practice strips) to make something!
This is my first attempt, and frankly, I'm getting excited at the possibilities!

I think the rosettes need some pearl buttons in their centers...what do you think??

I love how mixing up the various shades of whites ended up looking together!

I backed it with a favorite piece of material I've had for 20 years!!

Now for the Giveaway!!

What a great way to use your stash. I should do that with some of my vintage hankies.

So happy you linked up at A Crafty Soiree! I'm sorry I'm a bit tardy in making all my visits. I was out late last night and we had a terrible rain storm when I got home. Not good weather for using the computer!

Your heart is so pretty, I love that you used so many different types of lace and the fabric you've had for so long. Thanks for sharing and I hope you'll join us for the newest one, it started today.
