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!

Hi Lorelei, I will scan some of the pieces when I get time to do it & then show them here. There are about 30 pieces.

If you had a scanner you could scan some of the needle lace pieces and show us pictures!

Hi Liz, Lovely to hear from you again. I did enjoy my trip to Aus! Could have stayed there for good especially as the ground doesn't shake & the weather was beautiful! Came back to 10 degrees! Howvere your trip sounded great too. I have got an old lace collection from a friend whose family gave each other antique lace for birthdays & Xmas & she has passed it on to me for safe keeping. All kinds including needlelace & some pieces from the 16th-17 century. One day i will sort it all out & give it to the museum. I am well thankyou at the moment & looking forward to saving for another trip to Aus in a couple of years.

Fancy still having quakes. Unbelievable. Tahnk goodness I am here not there, as I would have such frayed nerves by now.  I marvel at you, Lynette, and your calm aproach to it all.

I hope your trip away did you a lot of good. Caloundra should have been nice at this time of the year.

I am back in Melbourne after going to USA in July/august. Denver and Washington were very hot, but Seattle was just pleasant. I was teaching needlelace in all 3 places (I was invited to teach at the IOLI convention in Bethesda (an out, outer suburb of Washington, DC.) We got to see a beaut lace collection in the American History Museum (Smithsonian), and it was arranged especially for the IOLI people, and they showed us laces relating to the classes that were being taught, so that was really good. We saw Laces dating from 1570 to World War I.!! Part of a Bayeux Tapestry deisgn worked in needlelace, a beaut. Point de Gaze shawl, all sorts of beautiful laces!  Drool, drool, drool!!!

Stay safe and stay well. Liz.
