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…

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…

The Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit until Jan 10, 2016

Exhibit titled:  Fashion and Virtue: Textile Patterns and the Print Revolution 1520-1620

This exhibit is well worth seeing if you have a couple of hours in New York City.   I was lucky to be in NYC for a long weekend and enjoyed viewing this exhibit. My husband found the entire exhibit very interesting and he is not a lacer!  It is only 2 galleries and the items are beautiful to view.   If the Christmas Tree is still up - that is special to see as well.   

Exhibit has only a…

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.

Hinojosa patterns

I have a Spanish pillow. I would like to purchase a couple of patterns on the cardboard that is used in Spain and Portugal. I have 2 of them, but no pictures of the finished laces. I have tried to buy online from a Spanish vendor, but link crashes when I try to enter my credit card info.

Are there any vendors in the US for these cardboard patterns with instructions and/or photos?

Has anyone seen the patterns in Marina Requeiro's book 'Hinojosa Lace'? $89.95 from Vansciver?
