About 30 years ago I started to make a lace tablecloth and finished the centre, round two and then round four. It has not seen the light of day for more years than I care to remember.
Eight years ago I retired from teaching bobbinlace and have done very little since.
The visit I made to Patsy and her friends making lace in Florida spurred me on to start making lace again.
I needed something simple and unbelievably found the tablecloth, prickings and thread.. so I am working on winding 59 pairs of bobbins to start round three.
