Now that it is off season for me I have time to indulge in some projects I have wanted to get to for some time now.
The first is one I took on at Pentaria this past year. It is a repair of a lace edging made by the mother of the Plunder Sisters. Here is the damage a dog did. The first step is to clean it. I am using a gentle cleaner that hasn't failed me yet. It is a 1/2 cup of very cheap (Dollar Tree cheap) dishwasher detergent in a powder form. You mix this with a gallon of very hot water and let it soak for 30 minutes.
