Kitty Fisher found it!

My bag was at the Mairie! I went to Prayssac with some posters to put up, and the ladies at the Boulangerie said to ask at the Syndicat d'Initiative and the Mairie...and there it was. I nearly kissed the Policier who gave it to me.  So happy, especially as it had a special Shuttle Shop shuttle with my name on. However I seem to have lost my tatting inspiration, and everything I try goes wrong, ah well, perhaps I need to look for that as well!

Lucy Locket lost her pocket...

Somehow I have lost my tatting pochette, which is in this picture. :(
From DS9 designs it has been with me for 10 years or so.
It was in my bag yesterday, but when I came home from the bank it was no longer there.* It has some shuttles, scissors, hooks and my current bits of work, so I guess they will never be finished.

Heyho, many far more terrible things happen, I hope whoever found it treasures it, even if they have no idea what it is all about!

* I did go back today and ask, but no one has seen it.

Et hop...

Onto the bandwagon.
 My first attempt at the Spring doily, mistakes a go-go!
Second attempt, both are worked in Majestic thread, which is a little bit twisty, but the colours are wonderful.

Delia finished at last

I have at last finished Delia, but I haven't been making any kind of lace/crafty stuff.
I have hopped onto the bandwagon which is Renulek's Spring doily, and I hope to share a photo tomorrow of the rather disappointing progress so far.

Lace class, 3 February

 This tiny patch represents three hours in lace class! Of course much was done, then undone, then redone. I am learning to throw out pairs from the half stitch section, as well as the 12 legged spider! I know it looks easy, but I really struggled...I must try to keep going because I leave to stay with my mother on Saturday, and if I don't practise I will forget how to do it. :(
Plus as luck would have it I need to work today and tomorrow.
 Oh, I am including the finished pincushions, with the buttons sewn on.
They were fun to make and I have some more evenweave, so I might do some more blackwork...although the evenweave is green, so I am not sure how well it will work.

January update.

 I had to make a bobbin roll for all 52 pairs I needed for Monday's lace class.
 Delia is still causing me problems, I had to cut again...I have lost my enthusiasm. I get like this when something takes too long, hence the heaps of WIP hanging around on my desk.
 I am continuing this edging slowly, I have a plan for it.
 I made this while waiting for David, and having nothing in my bag but a lonely half wound shuttle!
 Lace started, a torchon ground, called chemin de Rose.
 Another view.

Somethings are finished!

 My blackwork project is done, well I still need to finish stuffing and add the buttons, but I am happy with it. I might even make another one.
 This lace butterfly was quick and easy, except I will never try to finish with a cluny again! Another time I will start the two antennae, then join at the head and then work the wings.
The cream and black one was worked by a friend at lace class. She also had difficulty finishing with a cluny!
