Here is the progress on my newest lace ornament. I have not done my bobbin lace as much lately and I can really feel it. My fingertips are sore from pushing the pins in the prikking. I am using an off white linen thread with a gold metallic gimp running around the outside edge of the star.
This picture is a bit blurred but I wanted to show you a close~up. Diane asked me if the colored pins were beads. They are not beads although you can add to bobbin lace. These are colored head pins which are placed in certain spots as you need to remove them earlier or to create a little bit bigger hole for example when making picots.
This is a piece of lace I made a number of years ago with Sonja. We decided to make something very seasonal for the autumn.
Finally, here is a photo of my sideboard at my front door. I am using this quilt combined with the plumpkins we made many autumns ago with my quilt group. This is a free online project from Debbie Mumm. They are so much fun to make and you don't have to be a quilter to try it out.
