The Makit fair sounds great, I wish I could make it. Hope you have a great time.

Vous êtes très talentueuse Jean pour réussir aussi bien un motif aussi compliqué et aussi rapidement.

You are very talented Jean to succeed a so complicated pattern and as fast as you did.

Hi Jean, thank you kindly for the friend invitation. Yes, silk is a horror to work with, as I've found out to my cost, so I can sympathise. Slithers and slides everywhere and it frays so easily. To describe it as reptilian would be quite appropriate!! Not been over to Bury St Edmunds in years, do they still have that super park? Do you know there is a Makit fayre on at Peterborough Showground on Sunday 10th May? I see from the leaflet there are quite a few of the lace guilds attending and lots of lace vendors. The fayre covers Lace, Quilting, Needlecraft. Just thinking about it is making me dizzy with excitement ha ha

There is another book called Teneriffe Lace: Designs and Instructions by Anonymous! which is really good. Lots of designs which are fairly easy to work out.

I found the design on Pinterest, and thought I would have a go, took a bit of working out, and I used silk perle,NEVER again. It has a mind of it's own, whatever you do to it!

I thought it all came in circular designs, so seein this square is very interesting. It looks great.

Hi Jean, no I've not tried this type of lace as I'm too busy trying to learn some of the many other forms out there. However I did have a quick look at Mr Stillwell's book and thought it was extremely well authored for the beginner. Happy playing!

Thank you,yes I do sleep,I have some good pills!!! As I am slightly disabled I spend  a lot of time sitting down!!! I'm not sure what this piece represents, I found it on Pinterest, and just tried to copy it. I think it turned out alright! Have you tried this craft yet? It looks complicated when you start but then just gets fascinating. All the best.

Hi Jean, it is evident that this craft is proving to be immensely satisfying and it's wonderful this new found craft is having such an effect on you - the sense of having achieved something new and fulfilling - can almost feel it over here in the East Midlands! This particular piece has caught my eye, there is a certain beauty to it but not sure if it represents a bird or some insect? In such a short space of time, you have accomplished so much. If you do sleep, you are probably dreaming up new ideas to try .... Keep at it!
