Lacy clouds part I

The top fabric is supposed to be the sky, the two at the bottom the sea.
I don't like the combination of the sky blue and the sea green.

Clouds can act as a nice division. Fortunately the challenge packet contains a lace motive.
This motive is perfect for clouds.


I cut the motive apart, used fray stop for the cut ends,

..and rearranged them, then sewed them on.

Finished clouds.

All about the "Message in a bottle challenge" can be found here.


  1. The colours are beautiful. And I nearly cried when I saw your clouds cut apart but ok - you had to.

  2. I was thinking the lace piece looked like foam on the waves, and that you were going to use it for your water. Ha, you fooled me!
    The lace looks great as clouds.

  3. I had the same thoughts as Suz...I was seeing waves. It is looking great so far!

  4. Wat een prachtig begin! Mooie foto in je blogheader.

  5. You are so good at seeing the potential of the pieces in your kit. Like Suztats and Connie, I first only saw waves, but the lace will make beautiful clouds, too. This project will be very interesting to follow.

  6. Very clever and creative of you to look at that piece of lace and see clouds for your beautiful blue sky. I also see waves for the sea-green ocean. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

  7. I like the idea of cutting up the lace to create the illusion of clouds.

  8. This Message In a Bottle challenge looks really neat! Definitely looking fwd to seeing what you are going to do next with your pieces.

  9. Very clever use of the lace pieces. This looks like a fun challenege.

  10. Looks like a very interesting challenge and you really have some neat ideas! Thanks for sharing.
