This is what I have been working on for a few weeks. It is a Mediterranean Knotted Lace motif. In fact, I have another little motif on the needle (as it were) and I’m hoping to finish it soon. For my first pieces, they are all right. If I can just practice this a bit more, I might even have some even stitching.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of being one of several gals who demonstrated at the Yamhill County Fair. Alice happens to volunteer there every year, so we have the opportunity to demonstrate.
The gals brought some lovely lace pieces to show off. Here are several lovely examples of Mediterranean Knotted Lace.
Some bobbin lace.
Lots and lots of bobbin lace.
However, there were many different laces represented in the competition.
Here are most of the gals with their pillows and bobbin lace.
And here is Elena, working on her Mediterranean Knotted Lace. Yes, she did crack the whip on me and I had to remember how to do all of those stitches I learned last month. Then she taught me a few new ones. And on Monday night, I took another class with her and she cracked the whip again. “Just 2 more rounds, Kelli.” Ha.
