The lace was white and my dress is candle light so I had to dye it I followed these instructions:
Once the color matched I began to sew. On Friday I finished the first layer, there are five more to go. Each rose and it's leaves takes about and hour and forty five minutes to hand stitch in detail.
Mikey always says that any project of mine is a big project the first layer that I completed had forty two roses it took me about ninety hours. It is looking just lovely. It keeps me out of trouble. It has allowed me to catch up on TV shows like Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, Prison Break, Bones and In Plain Sight (Yay! for netflix streaming). And I think it is a really cool way to honor my mom.
