I found this lace at a thrift store? What is it?
I recognize some techniques but others I don't. I found a Needle Lace book at the library and found more of the techniques but nothing put together like this.
The blue background is synthetic fabric so it's not very old. It reminds me of fabric from a bad bridesmaid dress.
The thread that made the lace on the outside is the same thread that made the inside lace.
There's a spiderweb in the very center of the flower and dove's eyes surrounding the flower. The bars in the flower are needle woven. But, the rest of the flower? I haven't seen anything like it before.
What I like the best are the flowers around the edges. That is something else I've never seen before. I'm going to have to try to duplicate one.
