Isn't this the sweetest baby's top
it is all hand made with exquisite hand made lace
and tiny pin tucking.
I found it at a Brocante in my daughter's village.
The back is just as beautiful
the fabric is the finest lawn or voile
with tiny mother-of-pearl buttons
I was delighted to also find this vintage broderie anglaise
I only have 2 metres
so I'm saving it for a very special fabric book.
I apologise for the darkness of the photos - it has been another
dark, wet and miserable Spring day!
I always look for old books and postcards
and I was happy with my finds
this one was over 100 years old!I would love to buy more but there is limited
room in my suitcase!
After reading Suzy's post on dyeing fabrics and lace
with the juice from her home grown loganberries,
I delved into my freezer and found a packet of mixed berries.
I boiled ¾ of a cup for a few minutes, sieved them
and added the juice to ¾ of a cup of water
and boiled for 30 minutes.
These pieces will all be used in my new book!
