My first bobbin lace ATC

The lace is off the pillow and I realise that I don't want to add embroidery but simply have the lace alone.

The Atc has a cutaway so the lace structure can be seen more clearly.

I suspect I will soon be playing with my bobbins again!!

Maybe with wire??

Very cool! They remind me of tree trunks and the leaves surrounding the trees.

That is lovely, really organic shapes and wonderful colours you've used :-) Sorry to hear about your hand - that must hurt :-(

Sorry about the hand pain-very frustrating. Perhaps you could plan the next piece of experimental lace-the atc piece is really interesting.

Love the back lit photography, lends itself to mystery... enjoyed watching this piece come alive for you.. what intricate work you've done...

really enjoyed playing with this, may look to making some sort of 3d structure- we will see what happens :-)

I love that piece. Love the choice of colours and the wabi-sabi-ness of it.
