Another craft dealt a fatal blow by the nerve damage I sustained 14 years ago - I was heart-broken, as this was my absolute favourite thing in the world!! I had just started in earnest to design my own lace, and was flying high when I was halted abrubtly.
I gave away a lot of lace, so I haven't got much left.
I started as most lacemakers do, with the more traditional lace techniques - point ground (that's the one with the typical fine hexagonal background stitch), torchon (the easiest, on a square grid) and tape lace.
Detail - the horseshoe shaped collar took over 100 pairs of lace bobbins at the widest part. It took over 100 hours to make.
Modern lace - my favourite, especially the lace designed by Jana Novak at Moravia Lace, and Eeva Liisa Kortelahti in Finland.
Above is a lace picture of leaves, adapted from a design by Jana Novak.
Are there any other lacemakers who also make minis out there?
