snow, lace and thank you

Hi, a big thank you to everyone who has sent kind wishes with regard to my arm :-) more comfortable now but also more inconvenient in some ways.

Firstly, like all UK bloggers, I am going to show off today's snow fall.These are all views from inside as I still do not want to slip over although part of me wants to grab the sledge from the garage and join in the fun!!

I have now put the lace on hold completely as cannot pick up the bobbins at all but this will only be for 4 weeks hopefully.

Finally, some friends blogs to browse, Frilly Bits monthly patterns and instructions for making vintage undies,Hannah and Bella, more vintage and altered clothes and Victoria Louise who is learning to embroider and alter clothes. ohh, better not leave out Pinky and Boo! We can all be found most weeks stitching at the Wednesday Stitched up meeting, Textile Workshop, Sherwood, Nottingham.

oh I had not seen the plaster... Poor you, must be frustrating.
The pictures of the snow are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Such beautiful snow, even though I'm sure it's not making life easier. Glad to hear your arm is not metal-less, hopefully that's a good sign that you're well on your way to recovery.

Great lace. You see, here we do it a litte bit differently, sticking in the spins tightly...

Acereta- do you stick the pins right in ? we do sometimes, depends on the type of lace :-)

acereta said...

Yes, we do for all the types of lace... all but the last two or three pins. Anyway, i am new for this craft, I can tell what my teatcher shows me, and there are very many types of lace depending on the region of Russia.
