I took an old Chinese umbrella apart. I have been using the paper from it for quite some time but now I thought I should try and think of a use for the bamboo pieces. There are tiny holes in the “sticks” and I decided to wrap the stick in embroidery floss and created a piece to add to the spread that mirrored the design on the tannish paper. I also made what I call map lace. I recently ran across the “lace” that I made on a trip to London. It takes awhile to make as one has to cut out the map leaving only the streets.
