Lovely in Lace

Picture courtesy of
Today's the day! My baby brother is getting married. I took the day off yesterday and both Miss Tanya and I went for a manicure and pedicure. We had so much fun!
I'm off to get my hair done and makeup too!
Directions for the lace flower pictured above:
1 Fold a round doily in half, then roll it to form a cone.
Crocheted versions yield the best results.
2 With an elastic band, secure its base.
3 Fold, then roll a second round doily around the first, again securing with an elastic band.
4 Embellish the bloom with millinery leaves, slipping the stem into the elastic band.
5 Use as a corsage or a gift topper.
I'll post pictures soon. Enjoy your weekend!
