Tree Top

I just finished tatting this to use as a Tree Top for our Christmas tree for Hospice Alliance. Now I have to try and figure out how I'm going to attach it.

Back to doing bobbin lace...

My lace group is doing a two Saturday retreat where some are getting more advanced and other's as myself are just getting back into doing it again.  So far we had a great time and made progress with our work.  I myself got back into again without to much of a problem.  Just a little slow in the beginning, but then I was right back on track with it.

I'm ready to get going on my lace making...

After my total hip and PT for that, then more PT for my neck again, as it wasn't doing to good at all, I have now hit a time when it is almost over.  I still have some dry needling done on my neck, but I am doing pretty good.   I now want to get my book out and get going.  

I have no instructor so it will be just me and the things I've learned about bobbin lace already, which I think/hope is enough.   My patterns are printed out now all I have to do is clear a pillow.  I have to…

Still dreaming about Hinojosa Lace...‏..

Had a total hip replacement on December 27th with some minor complications like an infection.  Having plenty of in home PT and visiting nurses.  I must be getting better because now I'm thinking about Hinojosa Lace again.  To see my Dr this morning to find out the next move and I'm getting antsy..!

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...

Barbara

I still want to make this…

Hi Barbara!  Thank for your welcome!  I make contemporary needle lace with representative motifs (flowers, birds, etc). I started making needle lace in 2013, but haven't done any in a while since my dressmaking and other sewing have taken much of my time.  However, I'm still very interested in lace, and I've joined this group to expand my knowledge about bobbin lace and other forms that I don't make but want to be able to identify.  I am also a member of Needle Lace Talk, another Ning group that Lorelei Halley runs.

Hi Barbara

The way I got into tatting was circular to say the least. I think I remember my Nana tatting when I was growing up but when we cleared her house we never came across any shuttles; half a houseful of other stuff but no shuttles. So perhaps my memory is wrong.

Some years later I went on holiday in Devon and had a go on a practice bobbin lace pillow. I enjoyed it but had no inclination at that stage to learn the craft. Move on a few years again and I was going to visit a friend in Wiltshire and tagged it on to a weekend tatting course. The course was cancelled but they said I could learn lace making. I agreed.

Back home, it turned out my Mum's best friend went to a lace class - I never knew she made lace. I enrolled on to the class and did a year's beginner's class. I was encouraged to do the City and Guilds course which as you probably know included tatting as one of the skills. So I got there in the end!

I've only just started trying to tat again in the last year or so after seeing a book on tatted jewellery but am making very slow progress.

Thank you Barbara!  My Mom and I have always loved lace and she bought me a kit many years ago and now I have some time to learn.

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.

Virginia
