Intense Needlelace

One of our Guild members did a mini class on needlelace yesterday afternoon. We all started stitching at about 2 pm under the guidance of Linda and by the end of the class had a basic understanding of the process and we had finished most of one petal. I loved it so much that I carried on stitching when I got home and finished this little flower at 10.30pm. Except for the drive home and a break for dinner, that was almost six hours stitching for a piece of work of less than 2" square.
I want to do another one - now! Thank you Linda, my efforts will never be a patch on your wonderfully skilled and beautiful work but I will gain so much pleasure out of this technique.

My own tutorial on embroidered beads that I did for last month's Guild meeting has produced this lovely bead embroidered by Christine.  It sparkles! It will be the first one to go in the little display cabinet for our exhibition in October.  We seem to be accumulating lots of projects at the moment !

I'm starting to think about my visit to Ullapool this month - I can feel the excitement rising already!
