Today after school, I put a fabric cover on my bobbin lace pillow and practiced the first lesson in my book Bobbin Lace by Gilian Dye & Adrienne Thunder. I learned how to wind bobbins and work a plait. It went fairly quickly and for a first time effort, I was pleased with how my plait turned out. I'm sure I'll look at this picture in a few months and wonder how I could ever have been pleased with this effort, but for now I'm happy. I really don't like the pillow, though. I have a feeling I might have to buy a decent one soon! Any suggestions from experienced lace makers are welcome!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
