4 inches of Lace – Detail 391 August 27th, 2007

On the bottom of this stocking I needed things that would move the red on the heel and the toe into the next patches…The bird button does it on the heel side but I have been at a loss as to what to do on the toe because my tree idea, which was going to have a trail of buttons leading onto the toe, didn’t work and none of the buttons I have was big enough…

Lace FlowerTonight I went to my friendship quilters group, I took the stocking and my sewing box which had some charms and a few bottles of beads in it, I didn’t think that I had enough to do anything with but I never stitch much at meetings as I usually spend most of the time talking…When I opened the sewing box to see just what I did have in it there was a 4″ piece of dark red lace which I had picked up of the floor and tossed into the box earlier in the day…Ummm it was the right colour, I gathered it into a circle and with the addition of a few beads and a couple of leaves I had a flower which has done just what I wanted it to do…I often amazes me how inspiration works, at home with a vast stash to choose from I was unable to find what I wanted and then away from home with only a 4″ piece of lace and a few beads to work with I found the inspiration for what I wanted to do.
