Been getting into crafting again lately (hence the lack of blog posts) and I have had my first couple of goes at Quilling (which you will see in an upcoming post) and also got some new threads to try for bobbin lace. Great for this weeks challenge of “Inside”.
I have had a lot of hits since I posted my first bobbin lace post and am thinking about adding a second page to the blog, featuring the handcrafts I like to do. Obviously there *will* be photos, but I can talk more specifically about the crafts in those posts rather then the photography. What do you think?
This piece I am working on is a Torchon Ground bookmark. It looks really complicated with the forest of pins, but is actually really simple, once you master the basic stitch involved. I am learning slowly that making lace is about 60% preparation and only 40% actual lace making.
I like this shot for the narrow DOF highlighting the shiny pin heads, I have a couple of round head pins in with the flat ones.
So there you go, on a cold overcast winters day, what I like to do ‘inside’ is sit in front of the fire, listen to good music and make pretty and interesting things!
