A very Happy New Year to all at Needle lace talk. How lucky we all are to be able to converse with one another across lands & oceans  across the world. Keep making lace for 2016.

Hopefully this link will get you there!

Back in hospital.

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!

Old Laces.

As you can see not all of the laces are needle lace but they are interesting to view anyway. It is only a smattering of what my collection contains, but I think these are the most relevant to this site.

Trip away.

Hi everyone, I have not been active of late as I have been away for the 2nd time in 46 years overseas on a wonderful trip with my elder son & D-in-law to Queensland for 2 weeks! All just fabulous & stayed in an apartment in Caloundra lent to us by a friend who let it for nothing! It was like a film star's apartment! Now it's back to old boots & porridge at home again plus some more quakes!

Out of action

Hi All,
I have been in the Coronary Care unit for a week because of bradycardia (heart failure) but now have a pacemaker to cope. I am beginning to feel like a different person but it is taking a while. Meantime I have not done any lace. Motivation is low but hopefully will pick up soon.

Dear All, Many thanks for your comforting words to all of you. I have not been able to settle to anything creative since being shaken awake on my 72nd birthday with the 7.1 earthquake. We have had about 800 shakes or after shocks since then & one wonders how the house stands up to it! However I am coping okay but still sleeping with a night-light on & the radio going very quietly - just so I can hear a human voice in the room. I am still very unsettled in myself but I know that once the… Continue

NZ earthquake.

Hi everyone. I live in Christchurch New Zealand & have suffered the terrible earthquakes which have litterally flattened our beautiful city. The only thing we can be thankful for is that only two people were hurt & no-one was killed. Some of us have lost our homes depending on the type of ground our home was standing on. I was one of the lucky ones & only suffered minor damage - 2 holes in the walls where the TV set fell & broke, lost most of my lovely china, & several other… Continue
