As the name says I'm fond of the Autumn. I hate the Heat but not keen on it being too cold either, that's why a cool Autumn is nice. I'm also a crafter and that's what this blog will be mainly about.
Beautiful! They look great.Wanda
Your lace is stupendous! Will you be opening an Etsy shop soon?
Thanks, I enjoyed making them.
Thanks no I only make short lengths for my own purposes. On my CQ squares.
Great work Suzy, thanks for showing them.
Help. Will I ever be able to do that. You'll certainly have your work cut out teaching me. lol. Are you sure you're up for I?. I love it! Blessings
Thanks, I am so excited to do it, its the only thing I think of at the moment. But am being good and resting between each session so as not to get stiff or too achy. Better to rest then make it so I can't do it. I was never this happy to do it in the past, I think its recovering the skill that did it, so many things I've failed on since mild stroke so winning on this has sparked me. Left arm is getting stronger too I hardly have to think of using it on bobbins now so its good therapy. Crafting is good for you. I suspect too it uses more calories too as there's more moving than in my other crafts, not much but a bit.
Lesley I'm not teaching you bobbin Lace but Kumihimo braid making its much simpler, You just weave the threads over a round pattern wheel. Its just a matter of exchanging threads across it the same all the way around the wheel, have a look on You tube for Kumihimo. Its easy.
Keep up the good work promoting bobbin lace as a craft! I love doing it too, and tatting!!
I love doing Lace, I'm halfway through my next piece of mixed colour at the moment its in blues and Mauve and Purple, I used 3 colour of sewing cotton and one strand of thin crochet cotton. It's Royal, light blue and Lilac sewing cotton and Purple thin crochet cotton. Its come out as a nice lavender colour in the Lace. Can't Tat at all, tried several times but failed each time, I do do, Kumihimo braids though love doing those, always got a couple on the go. Hoping to make a necklace with a couple got going at the moment, just finished making a belt loop for my dressing gown in blue, silver and white colours.
Wow! They look great! Moira
Thanks, Enjoying doing it.
