Looking for a book....pattern!
6 Replies

I am looking for a book of designs done by B. Cook.  I had seen where someone had done this one pattern (will enclose), and so I went on a search, but so far no luck.  I wonder if anyone can help…Continue

We have no snow now, but these are up again. It's been so gloomy I just haven't taken a new picture. Just picture no snow on the ground.

Just to let you know.....

I've had surgery on my neck last Tuesday the 24th.   Lots of arthritis.  He had to take out each disc, clean it up, put it back in with new spacer bars between them.  Right now....it doesn't feel good at all...!!  Lots of pain today, must be healing...ha, ha!

Hope to get back into things in maybe a week or so...I hope.  Will be thinking of all the projects your doing and I'm not...!

Later friends...

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…

Irish Crochet Motifs...

It has been quite a while since I have done any crochet work, but my group got together this past weekend to learn more on Irish Crochet.  I didn't follow through with it before, but when I saw what they were going to do, I just had to go and I'm glad I did.  I have finished my first Irish Crochet flower head.  I had to leave for a 70th Anniversary for my Aunt and Uncle who are both in there 90's, and I couldn't miss that.  I then went back in time to get started on the leave.

Good morning, Barbara,

My husband and I love the Kenosha area. When we can, we visit the Bristol Ren Faire there. That was our first Renaissance faire we attended and so, it is our favorite. We've been going almost every year for almost 20 years.
Next time we go, I'll have to check out their crafts area and see if there are any bobbin lacers there.

Thanks for contacting me Barbara.  I am a little slow, trying to learn to navigate Laceioli site.  I am having some difficulty identifying some of my laces.  can you recommend where to go with questions?

Kind Regards,

Mary Dee

Just doing torchon so far.  Want to do it in a bigger format so it is easier to see.

Thank you for the welcome!  I am browsing the site at this point.  There is sooo much to look at.  I began with an interest in Romanian Point Lace, but I have been following some Italian bloggers' blogs and love their work.  From watching the videos I may just try my hand at bobbin lace.

I found recently that I've created many knitted lace patterns with my yarn over errors that I, of course, took out.  I'm working on a couple lacey knitted pieces, but they are on the back burner, again, as I focus on Christmas gifts.

I'm busy crocheting my cord for some Romanian or tape lace ideas I've found at the Antique Pattern Library.

Too much to do!

Hi Barbara,

I do multiple crafts so I have rotated back to doing some bobbin lace again.  Made a few small pieces.  Because I don't like working with thin thread, I have been increasing the size of prickings and making them in 4 ply cotton.  I also made my own bobbins- a fun thing to do carving the dowels and adding beads on my covered porch during the summer.  I am using Lessons in Bobbin Lacemaking by Doris Southard because it explains everything from "scratch" as it were.  Also using Bobbin Lace by Dye and Thunder for relearning the basics and practicing- but doing it larger.

It is relaxing.

Hi Barbara,

Thank you for the greeting to the site.  I am a beginner in bobbin lace. I have finished several bookmarks, a small lst doily, and am now trying to do a Slovenian lace butterfly which I am enjoying.

thank you ,so much.I would love to be your friend. How long have you been doing  lace?

Hello Barbara! There is a saying that one picture can tell more than hundred words, so I send you a photo of my works at the bobbin lace festival that took place last summer in Pärnu (Estonia). The white "table cloth" is actually a shawl I made of fine wool and in bobbin lace technique. It is one meter wide and two meters long and it took about 900 working hours to complete it. I also like to make something for men - so there are two ties and also a lace for a tuxedo belt... I hope you like them.

From Carolina's website. The black lace near the bottom is a free Hinojosa pattern.
