Today I am switching to a different internet service provider. If t  here are glitches I may go silent for some time, until it gets straightened out. Just so you know.  The prospect freaks me out.

Thanks for having accepted me in your group. You asked me what is Punto Tavarnelle so I wish to tell you some more. It is a needle lace, like many others, but very used in a little town near Florence, Tuscany, Italy. You surely know that needle lace is endless, we in Italy have a lot of different kinds of needle laces, each one known with the place name of the city where it comes from. Each one has its typical patterns, even if you can find some pattern in more than one city. Thread thickness and stitches are often different, as well as the way to work, but results are always the best ones
