I know, it's been a long time since you have heard from me. Well, it's been a rather rotten year so far. Since last September I have been through a host of medical and personal stupidity. Thankfully, the personal stupidity is winding down and the medical, well, let's just say I'm not letting it sideline me the way it has previously.
I haven't been idle even though I have had to cancel most of my vending appearances. I have created a new line of Victorian inspired Lace and Linen items. I absolutely adore the Victorian era for their lace and their almost manic need to embellish everything from handkerchiefs to pillowcases and towels. I hope you all feel the same way, especially when you see what I have to offer.
Here is the first of the line. It is a Lattice Lace table runner done in a Hearts and Roses motif. The runner is 29 inches long and 12 inches wide. I used an Ecru cotton thread.
I am so very pleased with the way it came out. Please let me know what you think.
My next project is an embellished pillow case. I chose a Spider Web Lattice Lace pattern. It's not finished yet, but below are two repeats of the lace. I'm using a white cotton thread and a very small crochet hook (size 9). If any of you are crocheters you know as the numbers go up the size goes down. I like the way this is coming out. Stay tuned for the finished version.
I had forgotten how much I enjoy crocheting lace. It's challenging and the results are just beautiful.
