I had stitched my conch shells under the moon that Mother Mary is standing on today. Then I started sewing down the lace. I’m also doing that by hand and I’m figuring it out as I go. I have a lot of lace already dyed, but I have more in my stash that I can dye if I need it. I’m not sure how much I’ll need, but I don’t want to run short.
Knowing I have more allows me to use the lace exactly in the way I want to. That’s now always the case with my materials since they are limited to what I have on my shelves, which people have donated, or can buy in a thrift store.
