I am now on a roll here. This is now the second piece of Carrickmacross I have made. Actually I started this piece during the first Carrickmacross Class I took with Mary Shields. It was also the second project I started in that classs. I have finally finished it. So now...I am working on my Carrickmacross Lace Fan that I will mount into a tiny fan sticks that Mary gave to me along with the pattern. When that is done it will be converted into a pin. So here is the second or maybe actually the third piece of Carrickmacross Lace I have done since I also did finished the first piece when I took the class before in 2001. Happy Lacing all in Lacingland. :)

On Columbus weekend last week I went to Ithaca,New York to take a class in Carrickmacross Lace. My teacher was Mary Shields and she is from Ireland and a great teacher. I was so thrilled that I was able to get into her class. This was my second time I was in Mary's class. The last time was in the year of 2001. I was a very sick lacer who came down with a nasty, dreadful head cold right after  I got to my room after attending the banquet. This year I had the nasty, dreadful cold about a week before Columbus weekend. So I was healthy and enjoyed my class more. Here are a few pictures I took and another one of my finished project that I finished this afternoon. what do I do llaaaaa....

Hiya everybody. I have been painting like a "Mad Lacer" for the past couple of weeks. I have painted all of the bobbins in these pictures. That is alot of tedious painting. I am hoping to raise some money to help out my family expenses. All of the witches with Whiskers are sold except for the two midlands. I still have a couple up on ebay but they should be ending soon. I am taking all of these bobbins with me when I go to Ithaca Lace weekend. I am taking Carrickmacross Lace with Mary Shields. I am excited. I will get to Ithaca very early Sat  Oct.12th and going home on Oct. 14th. Last time I took Mary's class I was sicker than a dog with a real nasty cold that I came down with right after I got to my after the banquet. Since I just got over a cold hopefully that won't happen again. Here are the pictures of the bobbins.

Hiya everybody in Lacingland. I thought I would update you all...I do have a few bobbins on ebay right now. I have my Halloween Witch design left in Midland. My square witches have been sold. If anybody is interested in one please let me know. After I come back from Ithaca, NY Lace Weekend next weekend...Iwill have more bobbins to paint. There is only little bit more than three days left for the witchy one with Whiskers too. Take a look at the witches shoes also. Here is a picture of her
I also have another square one that I just listed on ebay this evening. It has a purple background with flowers on it... it is prettier I think than the picture is really showing. The weather was a bit dreary today and I couldn't get a better picture of the bobbin. But the colors are brighter than in the picture.

I also painted this bobbin today. It has a hot pink background with orange and red. I know you might not think they colors go well together but this bobbin colors really grab you. There is also some copper metallic. It really is a pretty bobbin and it says "I" MAKE ALOT OF LACE'. I think it is a pretty one. I listed these two the purple one and the hot pink ones on ebay today. This bobbin is also brighter than this picture actually shows. I am painting a few of these to give to friends when I go to Ithaca next weekend. I also have a couple spares that I will be selling of this one and the purple one.
   So take a look on will find my bobbins if you are interested in purchasing them.:)
