My birthday and my first biscornu

It's the first day of a new year in my life.The day has been calm and I have had time to reflect on life and handicraft.Many small gifts and some bigger ones have made me so happy.As I 'm a member of 3 swaps in different yahoo-groups and I'm really so happy to be a member of these.Every month you have somebody to make happy and this is very very good.

I have started this pattern for a biscornu ,first in yellow on white aida but I'm not satisfied with the result so I start a new one tomorrow.Maybee I use linen fabric instead.

I wish you a nice and creative week

Hairpin lace

Dear all

I want to show you a wonderful easy technic we learnt on the course this weekend.In the 60's and 70's I saw scarfs in this technic and I got one from Anna,a very great handicraft lady who has inspired me very much.She was a friend of my mother and she could so so much and give me the feeling it's a happiness to do different textile handicrafts.
You can go to and search on hairpin lace and you can find more about the technic and you can also find patterns .
Good luck
