It's all about the journey

I have no idea why I ever wanted to do bobbin lace. I'd never seen anyone do it and knew nothing about it. But it's opened up my interest into other types of laces, particularly needle laces.

The latest experiment is Teneriffe Lace. It's a needle lace that is worked in medalians then, typically sewn to the ends of a doily or to a garment for embellishment.

Tools are simple: a small, fairly firm pillow; a long, large-eye needle; thread; long glass-head pins

Then you wind the thread and start working.  Here's a little part of my journey to Teneriffe...
