My friend Lisa came over last night to "help" me play with my new lace dyes that I got from Charlotte Anne (you have to see her stuff!) at the Victoria, Texas quilt show a couple of weekends ago. I've never done anything like this before. I love lace, I love to tea dye, and Rit is my friend for shirts and such, so I had to give dying lace a try. We practiced on some old stuff, and cheap Wally stuff. I'm not ready to touch the really pretty medallions I got from Charlotte yet. (Are you one of those people who can buy lots of yard goods and then never cut into them because they might get messed up? I am!)
Lisa also finally pulled me into the 21st century (I was so enjoying the 19th still!) by setting up my blog. Something about good for business, yada, yada, yada. I may have tuned out some of the important stuff. Fine. I will say a (grudging) thank you, Lisa.
So what do you think of my masterpieces? The daisies and tiny heart lace is all 100% rayon. The large medallion is a piece of vintage cotton that I've had forever. I'm not sure what I'll do with it now, but I really like the way it turned out.
