Stuff that has at last been finished...sort of.

Gold braid, torchon bookmark, two snowflakes, and a bit of the heart doily, which has increased a little bit!
Ok the ends are still waiting to be sewn in, but I am pleased to be able to record a bit of progress.

I love to work while listening to podcasts, I can absolutely recommend one called "No such thing as a fish" which is from the QI elves.
Funny and fascinating at the same time, if you love knowing useless facts give it a listen.

Bobbins, shuttles and a cat...

Here is James, offering to help with my gold lace braid.
 And this is the aforementioned braid.
And here is a bit of land of lace's heart doily round one. Let me just say that it's a pattern that is quite a brain teaser, and I have done a lot of unpicking and re-tatting...and I am still only on the third repeat!

Ooh look, gift!

No-one knows where I live, nowadays, so I get no post...however Fox did manage to get this package to me, and I was really excited to find this in my post box after a fairly difficult day.
I thought I had taken more photos, but anyway here are two lovely tatted motifs and a motif of Romanian lace, which will inspire me to have a go, also some shuttles and thread which are beautiful, but I will show you when I manage to get tatting. I have made some bobbin lace this week, I may show later once I have done the tatting as promised.
