Recently, I have been looking at the boxes and boxes of old lace and lace pieces that I have and have been wanting to put them to use. Elevate their status from stained, torn and forgotten, to the beauty and elegance that they once enjoyed in our ancestor's house holds. Their beauty came from the hands of hard working women who enjoyed needle work as a way to soften the edges of home and person. Wet felting allowed me to use pieces of netting and old curtains and scarves as a foundation, to which I embedded these bits and pieces of lace and tatting. It is really hard work to get the wool to felt, (I didn't know I had so many muscles in the back of my arms!) but I am happy with the results of these scarves/shawls. I feel that I have achieved my goal and it was certainly worth the effort.
