Here is the restart to my Beds mat (I don't think I will turn it into a ring pillow).
I have now used Finca 80 and like it much better.
This is 1.1 meters of the bucks point trim I have made for my grandson, Travis. Now I have to mount it onto a hankie, make it into a bonnet and then print up the verse and instructions.
I am not sure if Beds or Bucks is going to be my most favorite lace - I love them both!
Hooray, hooray - motifs 23, 24 and 25! They were completed on Boxing Day, and looked fabulous after they were blocked, but that pic did not work and will not be manipulated :(

My Mousey pin cushion was happy too - now I could get back to bobbin lace :)


Last weekend, we took Wind Dancer out for a run - (lots of) friends came along and LOML panicked that Wind Dancer would not behave herself.

4 1/2 hours and a dozen trips up the beach proved that Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!
The cost - just 2 small tears in the skirt - 1 at the front and 1 at the back! Yayyyyyy!!!!!!!
My Lizbeth mat is almost finished - yes, no more rounds to go! Pic soon :)
Now I am off to play wth my Storybook - they are on special for January - 20% off!!
And a party tonight too!!

Drop a comment, before you go, I love reading what my bloggy friends think.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs

Congratulations on completing the 25 Motif Challenge. Any plans on doing another 25?

Hi Wickedtats, I will see what I can arrange :) Mousey is rather shy and only comes out on special projects, but if I whisper sweetly he may visit my next post for you.

Hi Sharon, I am thinking a range of different bookmarks might be neat for gifts for next Christmas :) Not sure LOML can handle the stress, but if I get started as soon as I finish my Lizbeth doily...

BTW we now have a Lizbeth supplier in Australia YAY YAY YAY happy dance!!
