oh my goodness, this is wonderful work. (I used to make lace years ago and found it thoroughly addictive. Until now I'd forgotten all about it)

Love the bendy lace which would look great with bendy ribbon! And it qwould look wonderful draped around a Christmas tree.

Found you through Lise's blog. I've got to get my lace pillow back out and try that bendy bobbin lace.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I have only made a couple of pieces, but want to do more. I even have the wire, patterns etc., but have just been to busy. Now that I have seen this, it just might give me a shove to bring it out. I love the color of yours.
