I was rushed to hospital by ambulance a week ago with a nasty virus which attacked my heart leaving it damaged. Have had a very rough week with it, however I have been assured by the cardiologists that it will heal completely in 2 months.
I'm home again now & taking things very quietly as I am very short of breath. Diuretics will rid me of the fluid which will relieve that. Each day is a bonus!
I guess this is the place to put this. I have just been notified of this site and found images of wonderful needle lace fans:http://www.lecurieux.com/accueila.htm
I have not checked out the whole site, but the lace fans can be found in the list under Catalogue.
The sticks of this fan are absolutely amazing! …Continue

Thank you for the welcome Lorelei. Sorry I took so long to respond. New to chat, blogs, facebook, etc. It all seems harder than making lace, which of course is easy! Alice

These are the two ends of the turban I made as part of SCA garb. In part this was a test piece using a variety of reticello motifs from a 16th century Italian manual. The quality of the work is uneven as this was a learning experience. In my documentation I had two early 15th century Italian paintings showing women (both midwives) wearing turbans with internal striping and…Continue
In the process of doing the documentation for a piece of reticello lace for the Society for Creative Anachronism I came across two Sienese school paintings from the first half of the fourteenth century that appear to depict drawn thread laces. The second is the pillow on which the allegorical figure of Peace is reclining in Ambrogio Lorenzetti's Allegory of Good Government in the Palazzo Publico, Siena (1337), which combines square drawn thread motifs with whitework embroidery and looks very…Continue

Today I will be scanning some of the very old pieces of lace in my collection to be displayed here for folk to view.
Watch this space!
Just found this wonderful video on what appears to be Chebka lace, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrSrhmiWmFw, but from Algeria. They call it Elchbika Alger, and beautifully represents the whole line of Tunisian, Moroccan, etc., variations of this knotted needlelace. It illustrates the use of a pillow as well as paper patterns held in the hand. Hope you speak Arabic.

I feel as though I'm finally making progress. I printed graph paper on my heavy blue paper and couched some rectangles so I could practice my stitches.
Here is what I've accomplished so far. This is not my first attempt at diamonds. I tried them with single Brussels, corded single Brussels, and various thread sizes. I kept getting confused with single…Continue
