After cutting out the embroidered bits from old doilies and tea cloths, I'm left with scraps of very beautiful linen and cotton that are too good to throw away. So now I'm thinking of ways to use them; these are my first attempts at ornaments for that tree at the end of the year. Very much making it up as I go along, unpicking, rethinking.... Who knew that sewing curves could be so tricky? Or that vintage lace could misbehave? I want to use the bits of lace so badly, though.
