Lacemaker's Lace


Humpback Whales

After a whale watching cruise off Coffs Harbour on the NSW North Coast, I converted the image of the whales on their brochure into this needlelace design. Whales worked in Gutterman's 100/3 silk thread with beads, the water in stranded silks and metallic threads. The design was mounted on an aqua coloured lame material which had been covered with a single layer of organdie. Overall size 6.5 ins x 4.5 ins (17 cms x 11.5 cms).
