For those who love hand made lace.
Finally got it, after studying Lorelei's diagram and looking at some unhelpful videos. The diagram was eventually what I learned it from. I don't know why diagrams are so hard for me. Also why can't the makers of the videos do it in slow motion? Here are the knots.…Continue

I have used these threads for the pulled thread work most recently. Suggestions from others are welcome.
- Self thread. The linen is 54 inches wide so I cut off half a yard ot so and I'm cannibalizing threads from it.
Advantages: It's linen and not slick or stiff, it's the same size as the threads of the fabric, and it's strong except when it's not. I test every length before using it. You pretty well can't see the stitches when it's in place.
Disadvantages: It's slubby…Continue

I only discovered this site about a week ago. Lorelei of Lynxlace appears to run it.
Several years ago I did a lot of practice on burlap. Using #10 thread on burlap is about the same proportion as finer thread on linen. This year I bought three yards of fairly loose-weave linen with a much finer weave, although not as fine as in regular pulled-thread lace work.
I've uploaded some pictures of pulled-thread word and intend to load more on my Photos page. This pattern is…Continue

Did you know that the lace magazine "Klöppeln mit Juliane" is also available in the US? Today I've sent a few copies of the latest issue to Scots Valley California. You can find some information about the content of this issue here on my blog page.
I am still having some issures with my hand, but so far I have done some tatting, so thats good. I have a couple new books now too. One in tatting and the other in bobbin lace. I don't recall weather I posted the tatting one before or not. Now to get moving on them. I'm still a bit slower with my hand, but at least it's working.…Continue

I wrote about the best thing to do if you are left handed, as most books and users including myself are right-handed.
If you are curious how thread size affects needle lace projects, check out my post.
My lace group is doing a two Saturday retreat where some are getting more advanced and other's as myself are just getting back into doing it again. So far we had a great time and made progress with our work. I myself got back into again without to much of a problem. Just a little slow in the beginning, but then I was right back on track with it.

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…Continue
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…Continue
