A few little bits

Ok ... yes I have been making some lace!
First, my tat design homework! I posted the motif on the right, but with some tweaking, I also like the motif on the left. Now I have to write out the pattern (and do some blocking)!

Next, Porty is ready to play!
Ok, ok, so I had some help here, but it has been a wonderful team effort!
Next stop, a frame.
The Lisbeth doily is moving along! I promise that there is only 3 1/2 rounds left here Diane ... but I am thinking there may be enough thread left to make a couple of matching mats :)

The Bucks length for Grandbaby is growing. The pic is lousy, but the lace is over 50 cms now.

I spent some time sorting through my samples books, and found I needed to replace several things ...
The book that spends lots of time at school has some items adapted from Christine Springett's Lace for Children. The half stitch heart, hairband length and flower (without the bracelet) are popular projects.

This key ring was designed as a starter project ... Ebonee made it to see if it worked for me, and this is my sample ... finally.

The ever popular snakes now reside in my book ... until I give this pair away too...

And finaly, I have remade this little edge from Rosemary Shepherd's Bobbin Lace for Beginners Book (for the 3rd time :)

Nothing exciting, but lots of little projects are in order for this holidays. Keep watching for the next batch!
If you are interested in Scrapbooking ... keep watching this space :)
Cheers for now, but before you go, please don't forget to share a thought or 2 :)

The Lizbeth doily is looking great! I really like the heart and the Rosemary Shepherd edge. Now that we've celebrated my nephew's wedding, maybe I'll have time to get back to some lace making!

The doily is amazing! I can't believe you are finding the time to tat such a large project. I have to admit, it would intimidate me. I can't believe the number of rings, especially in the 'solid' sections. You could have a contest to guess how many rings there are when you finish, although I'm not sure I would want to know!

You obviously love to make lace of all kinds.
Very nice work.
