Passive-aggressive lace

 At the beginning of December I had a lace lesson, I knew I did, but when I had driven all the way over to the teacher's house, (1hr's drive) she said I was mistaken, and that I was supposed to ring her to say whether it was this day or the following week. I knew that I wouldn't have said that, because I have fixed off-duty, but I didn't really say what I felt, I just drove away, feeling all upset. When I got home I ripped off the lace angel we had been working on, I hate sodding angels anyway, I never chose to make an angel, and also removed the heart that I finished tant bien que mal, and started this motif.
I am using the book by Pamela Nottingham, and doing as well as I can, all the time being aware that being passive-aggressive is probably not the way forward if I want to improve my technique. Oh well, give me time, and I will probably get over it! I have yet to finish it properly, but I am quite pleased none-the-less.

I think I would have reacted the same way you did! I like what you're doing on your own very much!

Don't give up,you are doing great work. Just remember to read the pattern and any tips before you start.I'm sure you will have fun learning the patterns. I'ts all trial and error and no lace is perfect.

Lucky, it wasn't me - you know, with trucker-mouth syndrome...and a very short fuse... : o

Better this little motif than an angel - I'm with you on that score. It looks as if it is going to turn out very well. I do not know where you get the patience to do that!
