We are doing a two week on-line course on making lace. From lace, from old bits of sheer kinds of fabric, scrim (cheese cloth) and pretty near anything that strikes our fancy. Being Karen, it is all done in white. Given how much chocolate I sneak over the course of day, this is dangerous.
I've used tuilee, sheer gathered ribbon, a shiny lace edge, a cotton lace ruffle, an older cotton eyelet edge, and some scrim with free motion embroidery.
This second one I've used three kinds of sheer fabric, more free motion embroidered scrim, and a sheer flat ribbon.
Not much happened at this juncture, just a lot of zigzagging. Then we begin to hand embroider.

Today's event had us doing this....
It poured rain this weekend past. I've made more progress on my mom's quilt top. Photos coming on that by the weeks end, I hope.
Beyond that, I am working my brains out watching Phoebe do the yard work. She has raked, bagged, cleaned, weeded, scraped, painted and is now painting the back porch. I'm exhausted watching her. Time for a cup of tea for both of us.
