Vintage Lace Hanging

I recently made this lace hanging with a sewing theme for a swap in the
Kindred Souls Art Group.
The stamps come from Oxford Impression Sewing Notions plate.
The little sewing machine image come from Retro Cafe Art


But these little vintage wood lace making spools...Well my
Heart skipped a beat when I stumbled across a small box of them recently.
Years ago they were used to create handmade lace.
Can you imagine the hours it took?

I'm going to part with just a few of these lovelies.
Each wrapped with one yard of lace .
now in my Etsy shop.

Very pretty - you did a great! Very creative.
You did find a treasure in the lace making tools. I saw a clip some time ago showing women making lace with those - I just can't imagine.
Enjoy your evening

Beautiful lace hanging! I think your sewing pieces look fab on it. The little spool is sweet. I have seen lace being made with them and it is very intricate. I don't know how they do it, but I love it!
