The Dar al-Hajar ( "Stone House" or "Rock Palace") is a former royal palace located in Wadi Dhar about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) from Sana‘a, Yemen. Built in the 1920s as the summer retreat of Yahya Muhammad Hamid ed-Din, ruler of Yemen from 1904 to 1948, it sits on top of a structure built in 1786 for the scholar al-Imam Mansour. The palace stayed in the royal family until the Yemen revolution of 1962. The palace is now a museum.
Our challenge this month is to use brown and cream with ecru lace.
Ecru is the creamy colour that you often see on hand made items such as tablecloths and doileys.
Maybe you have some old crochet work that you can use. (Don't cut up family heirlooms)
If not you can dye white lace by soaking it in tea for a while.
We are sponsored this month by Craft Queen. Many thanks to her for this beautiful prize.
Now here is the design teams inspiration for you:
Our winner for last month was Maureen Wood. Congratulations !
