"Yes Liz, 'tis me. I am so grateful to you & Lorelei with all the help the two of you give so freely. I have made two bookmarks using notes that Lorelei has sent on starting, and have notes that you have sent on 6pr crossings, that I refer…"

"Thanks Lorelei, My join, when I get to it, will be done in the middle of the day when the light is best. I do have lamps of course, (and magnifiers!) but I mainly knit or do other stitching at night in front of TV. Currently working on a HUGE drawn…"

"Morning Liz & Lorelei, I just googled Christinine Springett and found her website. Will have to have a good look later when I have more time. Also just found a page on the Gumnuts pages too which looks very helpful. I just checked out where I…"

"Hello Laurie, I have heard the name Christine Springett of course but am unfamiliar with her books. My teacher taught me to start with some loops of threads that are supposed to help with the join later. No Idea what they are called. I've put…"

"Thanks Lorelei, the pincushion idea is a good one. I'll tuck that one away for future use. It will help with the practicing of joins as well as mounting, then I can give them away to stitching friends as gifts!"

"Thank you Liz. I acquired the book from a friend who bought a great pile of lace books for me at a second hand book dealer. This one was the most expensive at $15. It was my introduction to Bedfordshire, and just made my toes curl it was so pretty!…"

"This is my edge Liz. pattern is from Pamela Nottingham's Bedfordshire Lace Making . I have been very slowly working my way through it, and rather than work samples any more, I decided to make something practical. In hindsight, maybe I should…"

Jenny commented on Administrator's group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Morning All, Liz, I did start back from the corner a little, though it's a bed's edging and the corners are rounded not square. Lorelei, I purchased the block pillow just to do this edge, thinking that I could just rotate the blocks as I…"

"Thank you all. I was at a local lace group yesterday & one of the ladies was doing a handkie edge. She had a whole pricking and a massive pillow. I really like my cookie pillow to work on because of it's finer height sides. I think…"

"Thanks Liz, I'll have to remember to try this next time. How do you handle the join? I am assuming that the beginning will have no pins by the time I go all the way around the square? Do you still use the little pad?"

"Morning All, I am not a beginner lace maker, but am a beginner at doing bobbin lace handkerchief edges. How do you all handle larger prickings? I was advised to make a whole pricking of my edge , and this has caused some issues. On my cookie pillow,…"

Jenny commented on Administrator's group Torchon
"Loreli, that tally work is amazing. It looks like the needle weaving bands used to decorate Schwalm work. There a few other pics in amongst the group that I swore were needle weaving, but looking close they are definately tallies."

Jenny commented on Administrator's group Sol Laces
"Sandra, although I cannot understand a word of that video, it is worth 1,000 words. That is just about how I do mine, but on a smaller scale and with finer thread. They use a block of wood with nails, I use my two layers of plastic construction with…"

Tell us more about your lace interests.
I have been crocheting since a young child, learnt tatting as a teenager, introduced to bobbin lace in my 20's & needlelace in my 40's. My favourites are those done with a needle, especially reticella, drawn thread, & tenneriffe lace. Bedfordshire is my favourite of the bobbin laces, which I am trying to teach myself.
