L.A.C.E.

Here is a peek at my next project. I have been thinking about this one for a little while as I was asked to do a display in the foyer at school later in the year. I intend to make each of the letters in the word lace in a different kind of lace. My aim is to make a Torchon L, a tape lace A, a Bedfordshire C and here is the beginning of a tatted E. Each letter will fit on an A4 backing card, labeled with the type of lace. I am hoping that once it is surrounded by children's photos, snakes, hearts and other bookmarks it will look stunning. I can then use the letters when I go to demonstrations too :)
Later on I may even make the letters in "handmade" - there are plenty of kinds of lace left to try :)

For more info on ATCs, have a look at my last comment in that post. Thanks for visiting and have a fun day:)

That is a cute idea. When I went to the Lace Day in LA last November the "Freeway Lace Guild" had that whole title of their name spelled out...each letter in different kinds of lace! It'll look beautiful when you are done! I hope you show it off when you're finished! :)

Hi Laura, thanks for visiting my blog! To answer your question of if I have a photo of the letters I do. Unfortunately I only got a photo of the word "Guild" for some reason I didn't take one of the word "Lace" or "Freeway". I think I was saving room on my digital photo card for other photos, LOL! Here is the link to the blog post I did that has that photo in it:
