Title: Random Sublime/Dia de los Muertos question
Post by: quartney on May 31, 2005 01:24:43 PM
Can anyone tell me what is on this lady skeleton's head?  Is it some kind of headpiece with a veil, or is that hair, or what?  It's the only part I have left to stitch  ???

It's a Spanish veil called a "mantilla". Here's a bit of info: http://www.veilsbydesign.com/mantilla.htm

Poppet & Rachel--Muchas Gracias!!!  Now it all makes sense.  Thanks, too, Poppet, for that great picture--it gives me inspiration for my skeleton mujer.  I think I will put a rose on her mantilla.  I can't wait to show y'all the finished product  ;D
