Mushroom Needlelace

Just finished this Mushroom for my next cat block. Its needlace and I wasn't sure I'd remember how to make it but spent hours making things like it over 10 years ago, and my fingers remembered. I missed not using sticky backed plastic though as pattern doesn't hold up as well But I managed just about.Its not perfect but good enough this time hopefully the perfectness will come back over time. The main thing was I enjoyed making it.

I came here from CQ for Newbies and just wanted to say how much I like your mushroom! I tried needlelace years ago and got frustrated and gave up. I know how time intensive the work is, of course maybe it was just me being slow and you can do it quickly :-) Great mushroom

I learnt it more than 10 years ago and it is fiddly to do, but I enjoy being able to make such in any shape. I can do bobbinlace too but that has to follow certain lines. But needlelace is flexable, if you can draw it or print it you can needlelace it. Its fun to try everything. I once did a gun for a needle book I made for a freind who was a Peirce Brosnan fan. It was a copy of the show he was in at the time. I also needlelaced his face. I enjoyed the doing of it and one day I might try some other acters.

I'm glad you liked it, I love mushrooms they come in so many colours and shapes.
