Fabric lay out for this new project which has been on the back burner for quite some time

This lovely fabric and vintage lace postcard was gifted to me by the amazing textile artist Lorraine Williams  who sent it to me all the way from Melbourne,Australia.
Thank you, dear Lorraine, I will always treasure your special gift -:)

My Mom ,Baby Ruth in her Baptismal gown. This Taufkleid /gown was worn by me and my brother
then cousins and my four children and it was present at the baptism of my three grandsons .
I used vintage handmade lace  and a pink  dyed doily  and various embellishments over the stacked fabric which was then attached to the album page

Suzi Quaife's online workshop " Peacefully Pondering Fabrics"

I signed up for Australian Textile Artist Suzi Quaife's workshop"Peacefully Pondering Fabrics" where I want to create  heirloom Fabric and Lace Book pages adding photos and other items as seen here in my first page.
The photo shows my grandparents engagement photo in 1919
 I used vintage lace which I inherited from my grandma who inherited it from her aunt which makes the laces 100 years old
