Sometimes, when I am at a brocante and searching through old suitcases full of scrunched up fabrics, wools and all kinds of sewing stuff, I come across a screwed up ball of something which I think might be provide a bit of fabric for a tag or a collage. I found this ball of old netting, didn't really look at it, just stuffed it into a little bag with other bits and pieces of fabric, lace and trims, haggled for it :-), and brought it home, thinking it might be ok for a sea themed tag or collage -
Bits of netting are always useful, right? Because they are so easy to manipulate and stretch and pull, especially when the net is as soft and silky as this one was. So I started to untangle it, and look what started to emerge -
only the most gorgeous, most delicate, finest lace! -
This is one of the pieces I rescued -
Ahhhh, such beauty! And all that hidden away in a screwed up little ball.
I am linking this post to Wen's 3rd Simply Neutrals Tuesday over on her blog. Hop over, drool over the beautiful photos, and then join the party yourself :-)!
