Coming to a corner

"Yes, I had to abandon this particular work because when I took it off and put it on to do the new 'down' I messed it up.  So as it was only a practise piece anyway I decided that I would start it again.  So that is the plan…"

I am staying the winter on Gozo and as I am actually from Flanders where lace has been popular throughout history, I have a great interest in learning to make Gozitan lace and to learn more about it. So I am now taking classes here in Victoria.
