40. Antique lace

Antique lace
4 x 6. Paper. lace, trim, embroidery

Partial text: "While Jennifer played with the babies, Tara watched me dissect an ivory silk bridesmaid's gown she'd worn for a friend's wedding. From the silk we constructed a baptismal gown for Elizabeth, and then I brought out my collection of handmade antique lace. We chose a piece with deep points, and I tacked the lace onto the dress for a collar."

40 in the It's Only a Book project in which I'm deconstructing my 2003 book, Grace: A Memoir, and turning it into art.
