>Lavender lace done… more lace…quilt

I have finished my ball of thread; it is always amazing to me how little lace a ball of thread actually makes. Never as much as you would think using size 10 thread and size 6 hook. Pattern one made a tiny bit over 2 yards. The photo above has the wrong color for the lace; the one to the left is more accurate. Did not know my daughter was taking my picture as I finished the lace; I was focusing on what I was doing. I am not actually frowning; boy, that is not a flattering photo!

On to pattern two in the same book. I am just using what is left of a ball to make this one, so I probably won’t even get two yards.

I’m also helping my daughter with the quilt she is making. That is her to the left in bed reading Harry Potter books for the second go-round. She has had it, the quilt, on my quilt frame for a few years, and I have my quilts that need to be quilted that are in a back log. So I figure if I help her, she will have her quilt and be able to use it this fall, and I will be able to get some of my own quilting done.

    >I think your daughter really resembles you alot too!! I love that first lace alot…very pretty. I think I like the “wrong” color just as much!! I have some sage green lace going right now…just narrow stuff…and if I could get out of embroidery mode (not a real bad thing to be in) I will work on it. I think there will eventually be enough for trimming a set of pillowcases. Have a great week Wendy!

    >I have that book too! Your photo is fine – you’re just really focused on what you are doing. I once had a photo of myself tatting and you would never believe from that photo how much I love tatting!:-) Gina
