Vintage lace print

I've been collecting some vintage textiles for a while -  lace doilies, tray cloths, tea towels etc with the thought of sewing them together to make a bigger cloth.  But somehow I just can't bring myself to committ to a design.  So I decided to photograph a couple of thema dn expose them onto a silk screen.  This one is printed onto a twice dyed piece of silk, with discharge paste. I'm planning to do more to it but I'm so inundated with community projects atthe moment that it will have to wait for some time before I add the next bit.........
