Thanks for having accepted me in your group. You asked me what is Punto Tavarnelle so I wish to tell you some more. It is a needle lace, like many others, but very used in a little town near Florence, Tuscany, Italy. You surely know that needle lace is endless, we in Italy have a lot of different kinds of needle laces, each one known with the place name of the city where it comes from. Each one has its typical patterns, even if you can find some pattern in more than one city. Thread thickness and stitches are often different, as well as the way to work, but results are always the best ones
Hello Lorelei, Thank you for writing to me. Yes, I am working on a personal project of FILET GUIPURE on a very fine background. I do not have much time to work on it and it drives me crazy. It is not the (lost) stitch that I am promoting in my book or my website for more than 30 years. It is kind of my secret pleasure :-) My FILET LACE BY THE SEA business is taking all my time and I'm not getting younger (energy). We have to choose. So to make me happy, I have decided to close my business and sale everything. Embroidery retirement... here I come!! If you or others are interested in items on my website, please let me know. There is more that is not posted yet, including antique tools, rare books, and lace collection. It is a treasure-box here!! Best regards, Marie
Last night after midnight I received a very strange message on notifications from Mrs Cherish Herman, stating that she was a dying orphan and wanted to donate..... I did not open the message to read more. Her message did not show up on My Page or on the Main Page. It also did not post in my private email.
I now have a notification that she has added me as a friend. I checked her profile and it says I must add her as a friend in order to view her profile.
This all seems very strange, and since the recent case with Willbi, I am concerned.
Has anyone else had strange messages from Mrs Herman?
