HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…

Hi Lorelei!  Thanks for your welcome!  You may remember me from Needle Lace Talk, which is where my work is showcased. 

I've joined this site because of my growing interest in identifying types of lace, even those I don't make.  I recently had the opportunity to get some close-up pictures of antique laces--some machine made (early Leavers loom work) and some handmade (a really interesting embroidered piece simulating gros point, but using appliqued linen!)--and I was able to identify them, but when it came to the bobbin lace, I had little to say because I don't know about that form of the art. 

I hope to learn a lot here, and find helpful people when I have questions!
