Now moving on here to another subject and more pictures...haha.
In this picture is Pat Pike. She is from Buffalo/Amherst area of the state. I met Pat a few years ago. She is left handed like me...and she knows how to do the Romanian Point Lace Cording. She has showed me I don't know how many times in the past ...and I guess I just didn't really get it...but TA DA....I have it now...so Gina...if you are reading this blog...take a look at my cording in the picture. What do you think? I did this with size 20 Lizbeth thread. I kept practicing it after I got home and I pick up my crochet hook up every now and then and add a bit more to the length of my cording. Hopefully if you click on the picture of the cording maybe you can see my stitches better and I didn't have to flip my mind over backwards to make it either. It is left handed made. Yippee. I can't crochet right handed. I have tried in the past but my brain will not flip the other way to crochet right handed so I had to have a left handed crocheter. Thank you Pat!!
I have been wanting to know how to do this for a long time. I have some Romanian Point Lace Patterns in some of my old Anna magazines and I have three books by Sylvia Murariu. One of her books even is for Christmas ornaments and there are at least three angels in that book. So now that I know how...I will be trying my hand in some Romanian Point Lace and since I can make the cording now...I can do mine in color which is so me...don't you all think??
In this next picture is two more teapots I have made from Martha Ess's Teapot book. Which if you go here you can get some info on how to get your copy. It is a great book.
Handy Hands I know will also be selling the book. Speaking of Handy Hands, I happen to know that there will be more different varigated and solid colors of Lizbeth coming hopefully by the end of June. So keep your fingers crossed for that.It is made using Lizbeth threads and also some Rainbow Brite thread from Tatakool. Here blog is here:
And last but not least ...this is what I won in one of the raffles. This bag with a pink and light purple Hedgehoggie in this bag along with a kit to make one of Ruth Perry's bracelets. Fun HUH???
I guess this post is enough for now...there might be more writing and sharing with you all on another day.
