Time to share a little

I have been working on Stage 1 of my Teaching Proficiency in torchon lace.

This week, I learned that I have passed :)

Here is a sneak peek at 2 of the projects in that folio.

This Thai Silk scarf was made with almost 200 bobbins. The pattern has been adapted from an oval doily centre.

Here is a close up of the pattern. I have not yet taken a pic of the finished scarf, but I will.

A couple of years ago, I participated in a secret pal exchange. This Oliver Twist thread and hankie fabric were part of my parcels. I played with Lace RX-P to come up with the design, then found that it had been published in Robin Lewis' 101 Torchon patterns.

And the pattern close up...

I really enjoyed these projects, and look forward to the next chapter :)

Have lots more to post, but need to take some pics and get organised!!

Hmmmmmm......I will get there!!
Meanwhile...thanks for dropping by. See you soon :)

That sounds so complicated, but the results are gorgeous!

Laura, your pieces are amazingly beautiful! Maybe I need to take a trip to visit you so that I can learn to make beautiful bobbin lace. : )

Hi Gina, thank you for your kind words.
Thank you Suztats, not really so complicated, just have to work one bit at a time and keep your wits about you.
Diane, you would be most welcome in my little group...but atm would be better via email...the lurgy reigns here.
