Tonight my lace friends, Sonja and Jannie and I are going to start on this star ornament. I am looking forward to this one and I really want more bobbin lace ornaments for my Christmas tree. This will go much easier. For now, here is a picture of the pattern as I prick the holes in the pattern. I will show you the progress we made tomorrow.

Just one of those days.....
.....you know.....a day when I just cannot seem to get things going and what I do just isn't right. I am trying to finish this nativity ornament off this afternoon so I can put my starch on it and remove it from my cushion. It just is not working out like I want and, with regrets, I am still plugging ahead on it. I wish now I had done a braid down both sides of Joseph and added more pairs that it called for to make it fuller. I don't have the time to take it all out and redo it so I will finish it and get this cushion ready for tonight.
