It was wonderful. I learned so much and I finally took pictures of my work.
The week long event went by quickly. The first three days I learned bobbin lace, starting with a book worm.
After which I worked on this heart. This piece was really fun and had lots of techniques mixed in.
The next three days were spent learning tatting. We started with three basic motifs, that got us used to loops, picots and chains. Then we made a tatted butterfly with a 3D body. I really love this project.
And the last day I tried needle lace and lace identification. I can see lots of fun applications for the needle lace and it was so wonderful to see the antique examples of the techniques I learned. Its absolutely amazing the kind of detail that went into lace.
Here is a petal to the needle flower I am making. Its still in progress.
