Hi Everybody in Lacingland,
I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.
Someone....hmmmm.....I wonder who wanted to see what was under my El-Cheapo foam pillow. This is the second pillow I purchased. The first pillow I got or should I say kit was the famous "Horror Of Horror" kits. I had purchased that about 15 years ago. I made one edge piece on it and that was it. I was in Nursing School at the time and really didn't have time to monkey around with the lace. I just wanted to try it out...but between working which I was working full time and going to school full time and taking care of my family...remember they were young that many years ago...I didn't have time for lacing. I also made a pillow from a pattern that was in one of my old Anna magazines. I didn't do much with that either. I still have the pillow...and I have to say....I don't know which pillow is actually more of a Horror...the one from the kit or the one I made. Now the pillow that I made is on my closet shelf gathering dust. Maybe sometime I will get it down...dust it off and see what I can do with it. It is a roller pillow. Maybe I can save it. I also have an old french pillow that I got at an antique store...again...many years ago....Never did anything with that...and I don't know...I may get rid of it.
I really didn't get into bobbinlace seriously until about 6 years ago. That is when I first purchased my El-Cheapo pillow. I have to say that I use that pillow the most. So things get made on it and then taken off.
I also have an expensive big and I mean big cookie pillow that is filled with straw grass. At the moment that pillow sits on the desk chair in the livingroom also gathering dust. On that pillow I have a huge Bedfordshire edge. I am thinking that once I am finished playing X-mas ornaments to get myself back to my Bedfordshire edging...and finish it. The Bedfordshire edge can be seen on my website. The url being http://celticdreamweaver.com/
Anyhow...here is the picture of my El-Cheapo Pillow and how I covered it. But I have to say that most of the time....you can't see that part of the pillow for I even keep that covered by another cover. Bet it is no surprise that I covered it with purple velvet and purple floral brocade material. LOL
Also here is another ornment that I made. I think I am only going to do one more...maybe two...and then I don't ever want to see that pricking again....LOL
Please everybody...stay safe over the holiday.
