This was my mother's Christmas present. She's a Texas Master Naturalist so when I saw this pattern, I knew it would be perfect for her.
The problem was that when I went home for Christmas, it wasn't finished. I don't know if you've ever tried to work a bobbin lace piece in stealth mode but it ain't easy, I can tell you. So Santa's little elf had to hide herself away a few times to get it all done. But Mom seemed happy with it and I was happy with it so I guess you can't ask for much more.
