>Commuter lace continued

>So here is more lace that my daughter and I have been working on.
This pink one is number 7 out of the 111 edgings in the book

# 7 lace I am making

This cream one is the one my daughter is making and it is number 8 in the book.

yards and yards of lace

Both of the above laces are size 10 thread; the one before is vintage size 3o thread and it is pattern number 107 in the book.

As for the yellow lace I was making, it is done and there is a little over seven yards, as stated before. But to show what seven yards of this wide lace looks like, I wrapped up my oldest daughter in it; she is your typical 10-year old lace mummy (like there is such a thing). This is also the same daughter who made the cream lace above.

>halloween Yoyos and new tools

>My friend buttercup who lives in Japan sent me these new yoyo tools. My kids just love these tools they really help little kids who do not have the coordination to do it on their own yet. I still like the old way but it is useful to have these for my kids. I do have to admit the flowers are easier to make on the tool than by hand. It was so much fun getting this in the mail and looking at all the Japanese newspapers that it was wrapped in.

I put a sample of a yoyo with coins for a reference for those of you who want to know how big the yoyos are with the big jumbo yoyo maker.

All these yoyos are for the Halloween yoyo quilt I started last year. I have been making these while commuting lately. Don’t think I have given up on the lace yet as I am still doing it too finished seven yards of the yellow now on to a few more laces will post latter.

I think I will add the yoyos my daughter made (pictured below) to the edge when I am done to give it a sort of scalloped feel. She has 39 made and enough fabric to make 80 total.
