#52tagshannemade week 10 - suffolk puffs and lace

I really enjoyed this one, Suffolk puffs are one of my favourite embellishments for stitching.  I used a piece of linen for the backing then added scraps from a vintage tablemat, a purple cotton and a purple and cream check. I added one piece of antique lace on top of the check and another piece on the piece of tablemat, where I also added rows of running stitch. On top of the running stitch I added 3 Suffolk puffs made from mid-19th century purple silk. I also put a piece of purple lace to balance the piece. To decorate, I stitched on some pearl beads and six purple beads.
