HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…

I tried to send you a message about my websites, which have changed their web addresses. They used to be

http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/index.htm
http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/collection/index.htm

They are now

http://www.gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/index.htm
http://www.gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/collection/index.htm

I note that, for example, the link at the start of the Beginners group
http://laceioli.ning.com/group/bobblinlace-beginners
doesn't work any more. It needs www. in!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Lorelei.  So glad I stumbled upon this site.  I've been thread crocheting for over 50 years.  I love all forms of lace and have dabbled in many other forms; but I am always interested in learning more.  I lost all of my tools and the pieces I made over the past 50 years in the recent Camp Fire and looking forward to jumping in again.  Seems like a great site with lots of people, ideas, and support.
