For Linda


Lace3

Linda asked me if I would put some colored paper behind my lace. I didn't think about that but it does make it show up more.

I'm rather facinated with this one and am hoping that maybe Linda or Gina or someone knows how this was done.

It looks like crocheting on rick/rack. The little rick/rack. I've never seen anything like this before and I think it's cool looking. Anyone have any ideas on this?

Thank you for that - it is a little better - I have this plasma screen or whatever, that is not brilliant on my laptop. It may be that a darker paper would show it up more????

But yes - that is crochet on rick rack, which I have seen pictures of it, but never held it in my hands.

hey look what happened when I googled:

scroll down the page a little, it is very like yours.

Wow! and dated.

I'm glad Linda answered that one, as I had no idea what it is! You must have a fantastic stash of laces, Pam - enough to keep you in business for a few more lifetimes, lol!
