    These are delicious - can't wait to see the final quilt. Keep up the good work, and if you don't have a home for them to go to.......

    Not so much the Irish Lace, and not so much since I moved here either. I taught Bobbin and Needlelace in the UK before I came here, but couldn't find any Irish lacemakers in my area here, and there isn't the same sort of system for recreational classes as in the UK, so I switched to my second love of quilting, and found a great group to join.

    They are absolutely lovely. Sewing by hand?? wow. And I thought I was crazy for all my handquilting. I draw the line at piecing by hand.

    Thanks Vicki, but the reason I hand sewed those was because I couldnīt get my head round the PP and this was a slow learning to get them right.

    The fabrics are gorgeous to work with.

    Donīt usually hand sew but these were are little daunting to start with and that was the reason. Like it so much as it helps me to relax in the evening. Thanks for your lovely comments.

    That surprises me, I suppose its something that is dying out. thanks for letting me know on that one, I have always wanted to make lace.
