Hinojosa Lace...‏

I've seen and heard enough now about the Hinojosa Lace that I have ordered one of the books on it.  Spanish braid lace "Witchstitch" I is the one that I've ordered.  Thanks to Carolina's site I was able to see some of what is in this one ahead of time and the other books also.  Not making any promises here, but I want to make that one stitch and because of that I made some advancement.   I was told that the one stitch I want to do could be made in some of the Milanese Lace, but why not…

The Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit until Jan 10, 2016

Exhibit titled:  Fashion and Virtue: Textile Patterns and the Print Revolution 1520-1620

This exhibit is well worth seeing if you have a couple of hours in New York City.   I was lucky to be in NYC for a long weekend and enjoyed viewing this exhibit. My husband found the entire exhibit very interesting and he is not a lacer!  It is only 2 galleries and the items are beautiful to view.   If the Christmas Tree is still up - that is special to see as well.   

Exhibit has only a…
