The more you know
- The lace appliqués are vintage (!). I bought these in piles a while back thinking I will find a good use for them. They were stored and pushed back (as it goes in storage rooms) and found again. Also have lovely Venice and French lace in a lot of different colours.
- The boiled grey wool was an investment. It doesn't come cheap, but I wanted to play with it for such a long time now. I'm glad I got it. Better materials make the work a lot easier. Also: many colours available!
