A New Book

Look what I acquired! I am so excited! I have wanted to do some Teneriffe lace for some time , and even borrowed this same book from the Embroiderer's Guild library. The library book has been sitting on my coffee table, just looking at me waiting for me to start, but I have other more pressing matters at the moment. The book also has to be back at the library in a week. Then yesterday I attended my local lace group and one of the ladies had just come back from overseas with two copies of this book that she was hoping to sell. One was instantly mine, brand new, at a bargain price. So now it can reside on my coffee table, taunting me to start, and the other copy can go back to the library for someone else to enjoy.

Jenny, that book was MEANT to be yours, VBG. Well done. I picked up a 2nd hand copy of Rosemary Shepherds Bobbin Lace book at Lace Day too, the new ones were more than 4 times the bargain price, so I've no excuse now to put off making a pillow and having a go at bobbin lace too. I think that'll be my 2009 project, learn to do bobbin lace!
