What I did with my weekend [Mar. 8th, 2006|12:34 pm]


Bleeding miles of blackwork, goldwork and lace, Oh my!

Here is (and this is a first) a ruff in progress:

Look! even more of it.

Now I just need to make some more for matching wrist-ruffs and construct the wretched things.

Did I ever tell you how much I hate ruffs?

Oooh! Pretty! Very pretty. Where did yo get the lace? - Is it white or gold?

See you at the open days (I'm going to be at both).

I have a confession, my machine did the hard work, I only had to keep repositioning the linen in the hoop (which took ages). I figured that if anyone guessed it was machine done I'd ditch it...but as no-one did, I'm very happy to use my experiment.

I have loads of the lace for sale, it's a naturally cream colour, but I also have some that i dyed black.

I am confused.....
I don't think this post is friends only, if it is where you are it's something that the LJ system is doing, and as the community is generally for a bunch of lunatics doing a very particular daft hobby, I like to make sure prospective members are joining us for the right reasons, but you don't have to be a community member to post here.
