Because they live about 600 miles from here & I live in upstate NY I wanted to be sure she liked what I did - so here is the sample I sent down. It is definitely beginner's lace, but it worked.
I finished on time, and here is the picture of my beautiful granddaughter in her christening gown with the lace border on the hem.
Now seven years or so later, I am starting all over again - and here is a picture of the flower it took me all afternoon to do. (After several emails to my instructor, Sherry Townsend - Celtic DreamWeaver, for help).
What fun. Hopefully, I will get better.
