I took a step outside my comfort zone (colors) and created a wallhanging using vintage laces. I recently entered a contest where Judy Murrah mailed each contestant 4 pieces of her vintage laces and asked us to create something with them. The Grand prize was a little chest full of vintage laces. Well.... this morning I was notified that I won! I'm so excited to be receiving this little treasure. You can read about it here:

“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
OMG Nicki, so beautiful. Congratulations.
Nicki, that is beautiful! Congratulations on winning the contest--enjoy your super prize. Ooh la la, you will have fun with all of that lace .
When I read the title of your post, I was thinking orange or yellow. I see the peachy colors in your piece, but it is very lovely and nicely done. Now if you really want a challenge, I can send you some bright yellow silk and some orange velvet. Should I mention that it is silk velvet?
Nicki that is beautiful. i can't wait to get my blocks from you so i can get my creative juices flowing.
Congratulations! Well deserved and I'm sure you'll put it to good use!
