    Wow, thank you so much for posting this, I wonder if my Croatian grandmother, who died before I was born, was a lace maker?

    I admire their skills - My Grandmother did tatting and I just can't get the tensions right. I was taught by her to crochet the pillowcase edgings. I have all her crochet hooks and treasure them dearly.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    Thank you for posting this - very interesting and inspiring! I had never seen anyone making lace and searched a bit further. It turns out that Youtube also has instructional videos for making bobbin lace, and probably any other craft a person might want to learn. It's amazing what's out there. Just at a time when there is reason to be concerned that some of the old crafts could be dying out, there is suddenly a worldwide community sharing skills and techniques, as well as purely inspiring and informative videos such as this.
    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
