Hand Painted Lace

 Having had such fun dyeing wool I decided to have a go at hand painting some lace to go on my crazy quilt - and here are some of the results. I love the effect and will do a lot more as time goes on. I might even hand paint threads - except that I have bought such a lot of beautiful threads that need using up. I have horded them for ages and now I am 60 I really think I should start to actually USE them rather than use ordinary threads and stroke the special ones!I am enjoying my stitching more than ever now, and it means more as well. One of the few things I can do that does not cause a lot of pain and discomfort, and which brings a lot of fulfilment for a little effort.
