My first ever lace lesson!

Today at Caniac le Causse I met with four other keen lacemaking students for a day of learning picots with Elly, our teacher.





For some reason I can't write beneath the photos, so I hope no-one needs any explanations.
The day was wonderful, we sat upstairs in the morning, learning three methods of doing picots, then ate a delicious lunch outside, a carrot flan with Cabecou goat's cheese drizzled with saffron oil, green salad with a sprig of fennel, whole walnuts, cherries, pears and cocktail tomatoes. (All local produce) For pudding I had lemon cake, and to drink, home made iced tea with lemon.
In the afternoon we sat under the trees and did various samples, Marie-Amelie did two! My piece is the one on its own...I finished last. :(
My tatting was admired and the others voiced an interest in learning how to do it, so maybe we can organise a tatting day sometime soon.

Oh, I am so jealous! That is so totally cool! My favorite is the ...ummmm....let's see if I can explain this well enough... the ones with the white lace on the blue back grounds...the one photo on the top...the on strip in the middle...that's my fave! Very pretty! They are all nice, though! Good job! :D
