HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY

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…

Lorelei, do you remember me from CALG?  I moved out of Chicago, and now I'm in a little town west of Seattle.  I teach classes such as tatting at a new crafts school here.  I'd love to be doing lacemaking during the coronavirus lockdown, but I recently broke my left shoulder/arm and can't do it right now.  Miss you folks!
