I pulled out a bunch of old lace and some Dresden trim.
I added the trim to the edge of the lid and dry-brushed the ruffle with some gesso.
Then I laid out the lace to see how it looked.
Then I started stitching. I could have glued it down but I didn't want to cause any permanent damage tot he lace.
Three quarters of the way to the top. Tonight I give my fingers a rest. It's a little tricky stitching through the padded top as it is backed with cardboard. I hope to be done by the end of the week.
