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.

Thank you, Lorelei.  It may take me a bit to find my way around the site. I am very savvy at this sort of thing.  I do love seeing what other lacemakers are doing.  I used to do Honiton and Torchon, but I really love Bucks. I have decided to work only Bucks now, but I would love to do some needle lace. I’ll check out that group. Thanks for your help.
