The theme for January was Insects.
Repurposed old damask napkin, lace fragments, hand stitch.
The inspiration behind the card was the inevitable Summer arrival of white fly in my garden. I like to reuse old fabrics and found objects. The damask napkin came from my old school, the linen was stained and worn and destined for the bin. The lace pieces were cut from remnants of bridal laces that were given to me years ago and stashed away in the cupboard. Very satisfying to use things from the stash!
