All the lace doilies and table toppers in my big collection taken from estate sales, donations, flea markets, antique and estate sales over 40 years. Most of these things ended up in these places because their owners/makers have died and none of the heirs want them. Enter me- I gave them a nice home but want them to go on a bit longer before they get donated again! All of the pieces used were round to begin with, a rule I kept to and I still have plenty to make a square one.
Materials
Mostly cotton and linen laces, some hand crochet embellishments from vintage pieces
Techniques
Hand sewing laces to canvas, hand embroidery.
