Russian Bobbin Lace Doily
I kinda want to frame it and make it a tray or trivet or something. The end use of doilies is still a mystery to me... Its not something to fits into my home decor, especially in their traditional role; I don't have any "fine furniture" that needs protecting.
I think the feel of the bobbin lace is part of the experience of appreciating the lace, so I'm torn between locking it behind glass, keeping it clean and safe from elements and leaving free to air.
