"I like the ease and silkiness of Lizabeth #40 and the variety of variegated as well as solid. And I only have 2 little 40 olympus. I think it is. I lost the wrappers to them and am trying to remember. That is what I made the Oya dark rose/magenta…"

EVERYTHING! I learned last year from Nancy Evans.
Tell us about your other lace related interests.
I was published in Aug.2000 of Bead & Button Magazine..RubyLace, Needle tatted beaded choker and earrings set designed and made by: Donna Addis *my given name. *everyone calls me Onna* I have been working with crochet since age 6. Learned to tat in '87, knit in '88. I have always loved beads since a child and always seem to add beads to any fiber work. I also am an accomplished bead artist..and I even bead over my paintings. I find soft delicious thread and must use it and touch it!
I think it would be better to get a good working knowledge of plain, one-coloured Puncetto before tackling the coloured book, but the diagrams are much the same so there should not be any problem with working them out.
I must admit, I have not studied the coloured book too much, yet, - too busy with other things, but I think I will do a bit more one-coloured work before I move on to multi-coloured.
The photos you recently added of your puncetto experiments, you specified that they would only be visible to your friends. That means that only persons you have "friended" on needlelacetalk can see them. All the others can't. But you can change that. Go to your photo, look for a button "OPTIONS", click on it. Click on EDIT DETAILS. Click on the box EVERYONE. Click on SAVE.
Wow! Well done! You are coming along in leaps and bounds!
I hope to start on the coloured Puncetto in a couple of months - in the mean time, I just have to see what others are doing, and drool over the book. I Must get the Urgent work done before I start, else it will Never gt done by the due date!!

Hi Ona. Thank you for the invite to be your friend. I am not often on internet for the time beeing. My new computer broke down and I am waiting to have a replacement. Now I can read and write on a very old one, but no picture and a very slow machine, so I just do urgent things.
Hi Onna. Thank you for the invite to be your friend. I especially like the tatting with beads--that's gorgeous! I suppose if you do needle tatting rather than using a shuttle that it could be considered needle lace. However do you plan to do any of the classic needle laces?
