While I haven't gotten any sewing done this weekend, I have (finally) hung up my art project. It's be complete for weeks, I've just been too lazy busy to hang it up. It may not be the fanciest thing in the world, but I'm pleased with it. Sorry about the awful pictures, my camera is on it's last legs, and I think it might be time for a new one.

The lace here was a gift from a friend, who found scraps of it at a garage sale and gave it to me. Thanks Sara!

I wasn't originally going to use this frame in the project. Despite that, it turned out to be my favourite.

As I mentioned before, I collected up a bunch of frames from thrift stores and painted them all white. Then I just used fabric, lace, and these stick on mirror sparrows to make a nice collage in the frames. They didn't turn out quite the way I pictured it in my head, but I'm pleased with it anyways. Better than the bare wall that was there previously!

The wide lace on the left was sent to me by Stacie. It's partially what inspired this project. Thank you!

This whole project was initially inspired by Tanit-Isis's post about lace, and a comment made by ElleC. I immediately latched onto the idea of framing lace, and knew that's what my collection of frames would be used for.

While I really do like the whole look, this has pushed my subtle bird theme to decidedly unsubtle levels.

In other news, I also managed to get my cork board hung up (finally) above my sewing table. And then proceeded to fill it up with all sorts of inspiration! If you look closely, you might have an idea of what I'm planning for my spring wardrobe.

If I ever finish this bloody coat, that is.


  1. So cute and fresh looking, and thank you for the mention! They are so completely different from the ones I made (which are hiding somewhere in the basement, I will post a picture when they turn up). I especially like the patterned background.

    1. I'd love to see how you framed your lace, if you ever manage to find their hiding space in the basement. Basements and storage rooms are notorious for holding fast to their treasures. Kind of like dragons. :D

  2. OMG!!!! I'm so excited. First, I'm going to copy you. You already knew that. Second, men just don't get shouts like, "OMG, look! In Canada I inspire art!" What's up with then anyway? I love it, and so want to copy you. I could use some sewing room art. :-) Yay!

    1. Aha best comment ever. :) Can't wait to see what you do!

  3. That looks amazing! I love it!

    And your sewing area is tres adorable... :)

  4. That looks great Heather!! I love the white + birds theme. It's very soothing. And lace is always awesome stuff. Did you glue or fold the fabric backing behind the lace down?
