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