A White Wednesday Vision..

Have you ever had a vision so strong
You had to act on it immediately to see if it was going to be as good as you thought?
Sometimes they are epiphanies of sorts,
And you wonder why you never thought of it before.
This is one such idea....or vision, if you will.
I have used antique and vintage linens in my altered couture for years,
And still have boxes and boxes, as linens and laces are my addiction.
The idea came to me to create a bed covering by combining various crochet pieces
Along with old laces for a one of a kind coverlet. They go together in a patchwork pattern with the seams on top
For extra dimension and design.
Tea stain the entire piece once completed for an overall tone.


I love this one so much, I've already started my second one.
It's a wonderful way to dress a bed.

Thank you for stopping by today,
I always love it when you come.

I'm also linking to Faded Charm's White Wednesday today....
And appreciate the opportunity to share my vision.

  2. Oh my goodness...this is fabulous! Oh, I just love it. It would take me the rest of my life to find enough doilies to do a queen size spread, but I am telling you, that is phenominal!!

  5. An absolutely lovely creation, you did a fantastic job, I LOVE IT! I just found an image on Tumblr that used old pieces of Lace to make a coverlet too in an all Lace Bedroom Grotto *swoon*...from an amazing site that had so much eye candy my hand cramped perusing the 49 pages of fabulousness! *wink* I put it on today's post... perhaps that will give you added inspiration for yet another amazing coverlet creation... I know I'm definitely re-thinking my Lace Doily stash. *smiles*

  6. Hi Jana,
    I'm sitting here having my first cup of cofee, frowning at the weather and now looking at your blog and feeling so much better! I absolutely love your idea and it's so pretty. I also love the way that you have it displayed. It's not going to last long.

    Lovely linens should be displayed and this is a great way to do it. Thanks for making life more beautiful!

    hugs
