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…

Lorelei - thanks for including me in the group. Sorry not to have gotten back to you earlier - doing taxes. Just finished Underwood 20 Lessons Pattern 9 with some difficulty. . . I'm wondering about the alignment and number of pinholes on that pattern.  My attempts to rectify things as I was going seemed to only make things worse. Either the kiss stitches or the  I'm wondering about trueing up the pattern (haven't ever done that before) and attempting again. Trying to keep the tallies square-ended was certainly challenging.  challenging/vexing!

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.
