SLC - installment 2 - my morning class

Let's talk about my first class.  It was MTTF AM. 

A120 Romanian Point (Sylvia Murariu)

Peaceful Dove design. A dove draws a smile whenever we see one, for it is a

symbol of hope, peace and love. The Romanian Point Lace dove was created to

stimulate these positive feelings. It makes a wonderful ornament, to hang in the

window or on a tree. It can also be used as an elegant embellishment for a fancy

dress or jacket. Design size 8 and 3/4 by 5 and 1/2 inches.

Sylvia was wonderful!  The class was in her suite but there were only 4 of us in class.  We sat around a beautiful round table.  I just fell in love with making this lace.  (don't worry, I still love Pag lace too).  When I was couching the thread on the material, I was in heaven.  There is nothing so soothing as working with a needle and thread.  My dove is not complete.  I did lots and lots of homework with this class.  I wanted to make sure that I kept up with Sylvia.  So I did a lot of couching before and after class, at some of the functions too.  If you ever get a chance to take a class with Sylvia, I highly recommend it because she really gets what it is like as a student.  She had tons of samples to show us the stitches and it was with yarn in different colors so you could really see what was going on.  I must admit, I did visit her in the vendor room and stocked up on kits for when I came home.  I will post pictures as soon as I can.
