Thank you all for the wonderful comments with your own reminiscences about family heirlooms in my last blog post. It was so heartwarming to read them all! I have been wearing my scarf and it keeps me warm inside and out due to the connection to my grandmother. I think of her when I put it on.
I now have my 5th finish for 2012...woohoo! It is really addicting to pick up UFOs and finish them. Actually there is a 6th finish but it is a secret for a little while longer. *grins*
I made a Celtic knot ornament in bobbinlace. It has been on my lace cushion forever waiting for the last curve to be stitched. In 2011, I had two lace finishes one of which was this tree which was completed but needed stringing to help it stand as it hangs in the Christmas tree. My other finish was the singing angel.
Bobbinlace has taken a backseat to my stitching, quilting and crocheting but I am trying to keep a little on the go to be sure I do not loose the knowledge of how to make it. I am now going to start a larger project on my lace cushion. For now though it is back to a crochet UFO which I pulled out. I have decided that there will be no new projects in January giving me a great deal of time to get some projects cleared up sitting in my studio.
Fingers crossed that there will be another happy dance before this month is out. *wink*
