Heart of Lace
Still working on the Whispering Hearts! A few vintage pearls make such a difference on the lace heart!
The old rayon embroidered lace this heart is made from came from an old slip, made years ago by an adopted Grandmother of mine. I love incorporating bits that trigger wonderful memories into my stitching!
I found little heart shapes in the eyelet lace I used to weave the background. A little accenting with pale pink embroidery thread makes them stand out!
Another day of stitching and I think this piece might be finished!
