May Bead Journal Project

The final "page" is complete. This memory ornament is in honor of my late mother-in-law. The lace was taken from the underdress to her wedding gown. When it actually came time to cut into the dress, just couldn't do it. The gown itself is nothing but lace and therefore had a silk and lace underdress. Some of the lace on this part of the gown was damaged so that is where I cut into it. The pin was from her childhood.
