My Latest Project -- the Memory Veil

Memory Veil was inspired by an old photo album I picked up on (where else!) eBay.  It included a number of lovely small portraits from 1934-35 of someone's friends and family from a seaside town in New Jersey. I sewed these old photos, scraps of lace and fabric (some tea-dyed), and small pearlized buttons onto an old wedding veil.  It is wearable.

Anyone feel like tying the knot?

(By the way, modeling the Memory Veil today is a beautiful little sculpture we've had for years by a local artist.  We affectionately refer to as Zombie Boy...he looks quite fetching, no?)

ADDENDUM -- The Memory Veil was on exhibit recently at the 2016 Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival in La Conner, WA.  Thanks for including me, La Conner!
