These are my lace mood boards which I,m hoping will inspire me to great things.The picture on the right shows the devored sample which I'm certain I'll use in combination with a felt version for part of the fronts.It has been screened based on a piece of lace which I drew a while ago,from my collection of old French lace & I think that the scale of the design will need to be changed for the felt version-that is still to come,but will certainly make use of my new sharp scissors!
Staring at thes boards is a legitimate displacement activity but can only be justified for so long.The trial fabric kimono is going to be dip dyed over the weekend,weather permitting.More of that later.

The weather has been scorching and we went to a vide grenier to scout out old French books to alter,with great success.My latest altered book is now finished and my Kimono constructed from damask is progressing, ready for me to create a felt/devore lace version-getting excited about the thought of this.

The bottom picture shows the stitched spine,which I stitched with my lovely ancient hand machine-it didn't make a fuss about the thickness, as my new electric would have.
