Dream catchers

I have to admit that I am completely smitten by dream catchers. They're so whimisical and bohemian, all the things I love - so I thought I might make one .. or two!
 You can have some much fun with them; add as much or as little as you want, I tend to go over the top ( I can't help myself).I love them because they are so easy to make and don't require a ton of skill, just wrapping lace and ribbon and fixing the doily in the middle which might be about the trickest part! Anyway hope you like them as much as I do!

Lovely lace

I love working with lace and especially if you can find the vintage stuff - it can be really beautiful.
I like to take a piece and cut out individual motifs. These two ideas were made from cutting up an old doily and separating out the pieces. I managed to make a necklace and some little bobby pins.

Have a little look at more lace on
